Between the 25 episodes of Sea Change I've watched this week, I've also been trying to write a song picking up theme's from John's gospel. My last attempt didn't amount to much. This week's attempts have been consistently rubbish - so in my depression I've retreated into more YouTube...

This is what I'm up to now. Interesting metre - 10 10 12 6. It needs a chorus/bridge/refrain/something and another verse.

There is a life that can unlock the grave
A power great beyond all earthly laws
A love so fierce it reaches into death to save
then holds our hearts secure

There is a stream where thirsty souls can drink
A place the weary rest amidst the strife
There is a table laid with wine and living bread
Where seeking souls find life
