A song for Yom Kippur

Below are the words of the above song, first referred to in the post, “Is Love Outlawed in Germany?” That question was asked by a young woman who grew up in the Community from birth who loves and is loved by her parents. If she cannot raise her children the way she was raised, then she, along with her generation, have to conclude that love is outlawed in this land.

As that post records, the faith this song expresses is that “we were going to receive from our Father whatever He had for us and that we believe in Him and that’s why we are still here and we are not divided and not devouring one another.” As the song says, “If He prunes or if He takes away, still from our heart comes a song – a song of joy and not of pain, a song of victory and gain, a song of peace.”

In the Golden Fall

In the quiet vineyard where the vines are full
And the grapes have ripened in the Golden Fall
In the calm of twilight in the cooling rain
He has come to gather all that will remain.
 
All the vines will glisten to reflect His face
He will gently take them to admire their grace
And in His great kindness He will trim the vine
He will gently prune them for His delight.
 

Chorus One:

The seasons pass as quickly as they came yet we remain
If He will prune or if He takes away
Still from our heart comes a song…
 
Through our lives we’re changing as we’re loved by those
Who will bring the cutting so that we can grow
Our Song will ring forth throughout all the earth
Starting in his vineyard through the Universe!
 

Chorus Two:

The seasons pass as quickly as they came yet we remain
If He will prune or if He takes away
Still from our heart comes a song.
 
A song of victory and gain, a song of joy and not of pain
A song of loyalty to Him, a song of love that never ends
A song of peace
 
If He will prune or if He takes away still from our heart
Men (hold out): Comes a Song! 4x
Women: A song of Victory and gain a song of joy and not of pain
A song of loyalty to Him a song of love that never ends.
 

Ending:

In the quiet vineyard where the vines are full and the grapes have ripened
In the golden fall.
