Migration continues to exercise the politicians and people of the UK and Europe - a hymn

Sometimes the footfall seems incessant,
a challenge to our selfish greed,
how can we clothe and house such numbers,
our fear wells up to veil their need.

Yet every living person coming
should have a share of all our wealth,
but dare we give without a limit
to meet another’s need of health?

This is the challenge set before us,
to greet each stranger as a friend,
to share God’s love, that knows no limits,
until all fear and hunger ends.
