Truth is the Way

DSC02626Around 500 Moravians and guests from around the province gathered together on Sunday, July 19, at Home Moravian Church, for a service of Word and Sacrament in commemoration of the Legacy of John Hus. Another 100 people joined us through the live internet feed. Approximately $1500 was raised to support the BCM’s multicultural translation project. We give thanks for this meaningful service of worship and time shared together.

Truth Prevails 

I searched for the truth from all of the people who passed me by.

I looked through the Scriptures to follow your footsteps until I die.

I served as a pastor at Bethlehem Chapel to spread your light.

I challenged corruption and spoke up for what was right.

Though they take my life away

I will speak the truth each day.

Jesus is truth;

Truth is the way.DSC02614

I stand in the Council and listen to all that they have to say –

The harsh accusations and fierce allegations that come my way.

But I must be faithful and keep my convictions, I cannot fail,

For though they stop me I know God’s truth will prevail.

Though they take my life away

I will speak the truth each day.

Jesus is truth;

Truth is the way.DSC02716

Lord I wonder in all that is and all of time,

Will faith and love and hope be known to humankind?

Will the mothers and fathers and sisters and brothers ever know –

Under the violence and greed the truth will still grow?

Though they take my life away

I will speak the truth each day.

Jesus is truth;

Truth is the way.
