Au revoir (and a hymn text)

There will not be an entry on Povey Prattle for a couple of weeks. "The Pove" will be otherwise engaged.

Look for this blog again on March 6th.


In the meantime sing/pray/meditate upon/or simply read this song.

It's been my direction towards hope ever since Hunter Pope died.




1. Will you let me be your servant?
Let me be as Christ to you.
Pray that I might have the grace
to let you be my servant, too.

2. We are pilgrims on a journey.
We are travelers on the road.
We are here to help each other
Walk the mile and bear the load.

3. I will hold the Christ-light for you
in the night time of your fear.
I will hold my hand out to you;
Speak the peace you long to hear.

4. I will weep when you are weeping.
When you laugh, I'll laugh with you.
I will share your joy and sorrow
till we've seen this journey through.

5. When we sing to God in heaven,
We shall find such harmony
Born of all we've known together
Of Christ's love and agony.

6. Will you let me be your servant?
Let me be as Christ to you.
Pray that I might have the grace
to let you be my servant, too.

  1. I'll miss your posts, and I'll be thinking of the Popes.
