God is Still Speaking [Song]

A versatile, rhythmic, processional song, suitable for all ages and for us in a variety of contexts depending on the occasion and liturgical season. Our arrangement has simplified the harmonisation, hopefully making it more accessible for guitarists and small music groups. This is one of our highlighted songs for 2020, Year of the Word: The God Who Speaks.

LYRICS

Open up your ears to hear: God is still speaking
Living Good News, strong and clear: listen and draw near.
Through the struggle, grief and pain: God is still speaking.
God can raise us up again: listen and draw near.

God is still speaking: Blessed invitation,
God is still speaking: listen and draw near.
God is still speaking: see a new creation.
God is still speaking: stand and do not fear.

In the bleak and midnight hour: God is still speaking.
Sing the word of truth to power: listen and draw near.
To our fragile wounded Earth: God is still speaking.
God can bring new hope to birth: listen and draw near.
