Famous quotes containing the word huber:

    Christ has called us to new visions
    Here to celebrate and praise,
    Here confess our old divisions,
    Here our peace petitions raise.
    Come repentant, come forgiving,
    Come in joy and hope and prayer.
    Christ, once crucified, now living,
    Bids us faith and love to share.
    —Jane Parker Huber (b. 1926)

    On wings of morning our prayers and devotions are soaring.
    All of creation awakens, the Maker adoring.
    Join in the song. Harmonies blending along,
    Vigor and life now restoring.
    —Jane Parker Huber (b. 1926)
