Take These Ashes

Lent calls us to journey inward with God, and Sarah Hart’s new song invites us into deep prayer as a procession song during the Distribution of Ashes on Ash Wednesday.

Take these ashes as a sign
that from the dust you have been raised
and to dust you shall return.

Return to me with your whole heart;
let go the world and come to me.
Rend your heart and not your clothes,
for I am kind, my name is mercy.
