Follow the Songlines

Refrain:              Follow the songlines,
              follow the Spirit
          singing the world into being anew,
       follow the theme of the ancient ones' dreaming,
footprints in faith that the track will run true.

Time beyond time, dream before dreaming,
       one Holy Spirit has sung the design:
              pathways of peace, widening circles,
                     music and dance that declare the divine,

Bushfire may flare, searing our courage,
       earthquake of doubt shake the words that we pray:
              look for the shoots, green-growing saplings,
                     look for the hopeful amid the decay,

New songs be born, sensed by God's longing,
       new lines be drawn, in the rock, in the dust,
              calling out love, calling out justice,
                     calling a people to grow and to trust,
