Golden Memories--Lyrics

by Roger Tomhave, arranged by Carole Tomhave

VERSE Golden moments, golden memories, thoughts produced after their kind. Light surrounds us, love enfolds us, God, now grant us peace of mind. Gathered in a common union, let our light forever shine. Fifty years is* but an instant in eternal Love Divine.

VERSE Words of comfort, daily offered. Silent prayers that bless us all. Cocreators on our journey, joined as one and standing tall. Broad shouldered histories, big shoes to fill in the ministry of Godís will Hand-in-hand we join our voices where the light is burning still.

BRIDGE (spoken) On shoulders of giants, our vision is clear. In their shoes we walk softly, to listen, to hear. For the call is the same as our ancestors heard, And the Voice as impassioned as the One their hearts stirred. (sung) By so many names we praise the most holy So many traditions but only one song. One in the Spirit together in Love, Where three or more gather a new day will dawn.

VERSE Come, you tribes of every nation, patchwork quilt by Godís hand sewn. Gathered in a common union, let our light forever shine. Fifty years is* but an instant in eternal Love Divine.

CODA Join as one in celebration, Fellow traveler welcome home.
