In year’s past, I’ve written about the what and why about Lent and Ash Wednesday. This year, I’d like to offer a song. I began writing it last year on Ash Wednesday and completed it with the help of two terrific songwriters– Tom Read and Tim Hughes– on a trip to England last year.

May it bless you and your congregations.

“Always Be Enough”– Tim Hughes, Glenn Packiam,Tom Read

Verse 1
Son of God who came to us
Became like creatures made from dust
God who meets us
In the ashes
God who comes to raise us up

Verse 2
When we are weak and we are frail
Feet may falter, strength will fail
God will meet us
In the ashes
God will come to raise us up

Here with us
You will always be enough

Unfailing God
Perfect love
You will be always be enough

Verse 3
You bore our sins
Upon the tree
To give us healing, to set us free
Send Your Spirit
Breathe upon us
Speak the Word that brings us peace.

Praise the One, the King of Glory
You came low to raise up
This is our song, this is our story
You will always be enough
