When the world is babbling 'round us,Author: Mary Nelson Keithahn (1996)
Tune: MIDDLETOWN (Horman)
Published in 2 hymnals
When the word is babbling 'round us,
deafening us to human need,
when its selfish ways confound us
as we satisfy our greed,
find us and free us, O God.
When we fail to hear you call us,
when we turn and run away
until evil times befall us,
causing us to stop and pray,
find us, forgive us, O God.
Let your holy spirit enter
into hearts on wings of dove.
Let your will be at the center
of our lives afire with love.
Find us, and fill us, O God.
Make us one with Christ in caring
for the outcast and the lost,
that in joyful, selfless sharing
we may never count the cost.
Find us, and form us, O God.
