In memory of a Priest killed in Rouen

In every sanctuary of grace
where worship lives, where love is found,
where shaken images are sharp
and faith grows still in fertile ground;
here those who lead, whom God has led,
now wait in fear, a priest is dead.

The faith of those who worship God,
is not in question, still we wait,
while scripture says love casts out fear,
yet death can breed a sense of hate.
And so we wait and so we pray
for dawn to light a better day.
