“Song for Agape” by Sarah Pirtle

Sarah Pirtle, cherished friend of Agape Community, first performed “Song for Agape” at the community’s opening ceremony in 1989. We hope it brings you joy.   SONG FOR AGAPE Oh, justice song! We hear the human family. Oh, justice song. Oh, bind our hearts to all. Oh, justice song. Oh, heal our separation. And we’ll keep close your call. And we’ll keep close your call. Oh, wings of joy. We feel creation beating. The bending trees and rivers running blue. Oh, wings of joy. Oh, lift us every morning. Our hearts create anew. Our hearts create anew. Oh, staff of peace. Oh, lead us to engagement. Oh, staff of peace, lead our feet along. Oh, staff of peace, heal all inner violence. May we walk healing ground. May we walk healing ground. Oh, voice of love. Lead our voice to answer. Oh, voice of love. Oh, bind our hearts to all. Oh, voice of love. The whole earth is our teacher. We’ll keep close your call. We’ll keep close your call. Oh, Agape, community so faithful. Take all our prayers and weave them close around. Your steady hearts, lead us to be grateful. We lift our thankful song. We lift our thankful song.
