SONG OF CELEBRATION

a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark

A Song of Celebration
for Tværkulturelt Center’s Jubilee Year
September 26, 2010

Come and celebrate
Come and celebrate
Let us join our hearts
Let us join our hearts
Let us raise our voices to praise the Lord.

For God is almighty,
defending the weak,
strangers and widows
and all those neglected.

For He has heard
the cries of the oppressed
to them He has granted
freedom and rest.

Come and celebrate
Come and celebrate
Let us join our hearts
Let us join our hearts
Let us say a prayer to thank God’s grace.

For God has called
nations and churches
sharing compassion
to all those in need.

For He has broken
down the walls we have built
releasing power
as communities of faiths.

Come and celebrate
Come and celebrate
Let us join our hearts
Let us join our hearts
Let us raise our voices to proclaim His deeds.

For Christ is the Saviour
to all of creation,
our help and comfort
in all times of trouble.

For love is the law
that stretches no bounds
joining our hearts
to praise Him and adore.

Come and celebrate
Come and celebrate
Let us join our hearts
Let us join our hearts
Let us raise our voices to praise the Lord.

Come and celebrate
Come and celebrate
Let us join our hearts
Let us join our hearts
Let us say a prayer to thank God’s grace.

Come and celebrate
Come and celebrate
Let us join our hearts
Let us join our hearts
Let us raise our voices to proclaim His deeds.

One of my new songs, composed for Tværkulturelt Center's Jubilee Celebration this morning at Skt. Andreas Church in Copenhagen. The worship service was attended by the international community, representing folks of different ethnic background.

This morning, September 26, I sang this piece with guitar to the gathered community, asking people to join in the chorus which starts with Come and celebrate while singing solo in the succeeding lines.
