Here In This Ordinary Place

Here In This Ordinary Place

May we awake, awaken
To the presence of God
The presence of God
The presence of God
May we awake, awaken
To the presence of God
Here in this ordinary place.

(ch)
Here, here in this ordinary place.
Here, here in this ordinary place.

May we awake, awaken
To the power of love …
(ch) Here, hear in this ordinary crowd….

And may we build a neighborhood
of justice for all …
(ch) Now, now in this ordinary time….

And may we daily work
To build a culture of peace …
(ch) Now, now with these ordinary hands.
