Andrew Pratt has written a hymn of reflection in response to the French shootings of 7-9 January 2015, which he has added to following the tragic events of 13 November 2015:
“Hopeless to help in this violence, this crisis,
here in the focus of bloodshed and fear,
common humanity binds us together,
love at the centre, not hatred’s veneer.
History repeats in a city of beauty,
here amid elegance: danger’s embrace.
Love is our purpose when those filled with hatred
break down relationships, nullify grace.
Give me your hand, then let peace grow between us,
let us rebuild what distrust might destroy.
Now in this moment we’ll make a commitment,
love is the weapon we’ll use and deploy.”
