Lyrics

Who is my mother,
who is my brother?
All those who gather round Jesus Christ:
Spirit-blown people
born from the Gospel
sit at the table, round Jesus Christ.

Differently abled,
differently labeled,
widen the circle round Jesus Christ:
crutches and stigmas,
culture’s enigmas,
all come together round Jesus Christ.

Love will relate us—
colour or status
can’t segregate us, round Jesus Christ:
family failings,
human derailings—
all are accepted, round Jesus Christ.

Bound by one vision,
met for one mission
we claim each other, round Jesus Christ:
here is my mother,
here is my brother,
kindred in Spirit, through Jesus Christ.

Author / Composer Comments

• Author Shirley Erena Murray, from her book Every Day in Your Spirit (Hope Publishing Co., 1996, No. 33): “Mark 3:31 is the scriptural heart of the text, which was written after my experiences of worship with people of many orientations, including the differently abled, at the World Council of Churches Assembly in Canberra, 1991.”
