Release

You are love and joy and kindness
Come to heal the whole world's blindness
You are love and joy and peace
Come to give the world release

Come to lead us in your way
And guide us to a brighter day
To help us reach our destiny
To live with you eternally

You are love and joy and kindness
Come to heal the whole world's blindness
You are love and joy and peace
Come to give the world release

Come to teach and come to heal
Come to show us hope that's real
Come to us to let us learn
What it is for which we yearn

You are love and joy and kindness
Come to heal this dark world's blindness
King of love and joy and peace
Come and give this fallen world your release...

The start of this song (which now forms the chorus) came to me during a session at church where we were encouraged to 'sing our own songs to the Lord' - the inspiration for it was the banners around the room listing the fruits of the Spirit, the three that were in front of me being Love, Joy and Kindness.
