Lyrics

As children of your love, O God,
we gather in this place.
Called by the death of one we loved
and needing health and grace.

For life’s good gifts we give you thanks,
our loves we celebrate.
Accept us in this time of pain,
new purpose we await.

To tender love and healing heart,
to Christ our hope we’re drawn.
We find there grows within our souls
strong grace and life’s new dawn.

In life, in death, we’re held in love.
We face no grief alone.
This mystery claims our hearts and minds,
this love through Jesus shown.

In love we hold the time that’s past,
in trusting hope we share.
Each day, each breath, each other here
we hold in God’s own care.

The one who leads the dance of life
still guides us on our way.
Let praise be given the God of love!
Let thanks be sung this day!

Author / Composer Comments

“As Children of Your Love” may be offered as a solo, choir, or congregational selection for funerals and memorial services. This is one of the very early pieces which Walter and I created together. It was included on the very first LP recording which was released in 1973 – a resource produced by the United Church Observer. This hymn/song has been used more and more in recent years as people seem to be seeking more personal expressions of grief and loss to be included in services of remembrance for loved ones.
