Hymn: The Spirit of God is both humble and gentle

Proper 26 Year A
Matthew 23:1-12

The Spirit of God is both humble and gentle,

devoid of hypocrisy, sharp as a sword.

And when we are driven along by that Spirit

we live with God’s courage, embody God’s Word.

The ones who do all for the sake of appearance,

who wait on the praise of their neighbours and friends...


Twentieth after Pentecost, Matthew 23: 1-12, hymn, hypocrisy, appearance, selfishness, word, action, Spirit, teachings of Jesus, humility, gentleness, choice.
