Face to Face

(Little boy’s voice: 1 Corinthians 13:11-13 – When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Coffee and cocoa and peaches and cream
Red and gold, and the finest ivory
Ebony marble, pale copper and bronze
All the beautiful colors of humanity

God created us all to be different
Unique colors and races and creeds
Human beings designed by Him
Each one created equal and free

Chorus:
Be brothers and sisters in the Lord
Not just because you’re a certain race
If you don’t believe me, read the word
We must love everyone, face to face

The diverse colors of the human race
Have divided too many for far too long
See a child of God in every human face
To judge based on color is simply wrong

We’re commanded to love one another
Not to judge by skin color or shade
Love one another, love just like Jesus
We can’t look at any person with hate

Chorus:
Be brothers and sisters in the Lord
Not just because you’re a certain race
If you don’t believe me, read the word
We must love everyone, face to face

Final Chorus: Group of children singing chorus to the tune of the Alphabet Song;
Be brothers and sisters in the Lord
Not just because you’re a certain race
If you don’t believe me, read the word
We must love everyone, face to face

End with little girl’s voice: Jesus said in John 15:12 `My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.’
