1. Oh what twisted machinations
put a head upon a plate;
How destructive every impulse
born of envy, fear and hate.
Oh, redeem us,
Jesus, save us!
For we are our own worst fate.

2.  List'ning to the worst of voices,
caught up in the worst of games,
So misguided, worst of choices
leave a wake of hurt and shame.
Precious Jesu,
Let us hear you!
Save us from our foolish games.

3.  Give us a new head to lead us
guide us in your purpose true
Our own heads mislead, deceive us
Now we seek our path in you.
Ever true and
ever faithful,
everlasting, God of truth.

4.  Games we play divide and scatter
you have come to make us one
See the dancing, hear the laughter,
gath'ring all around the Son.
Singing, dancing
praising, prancing,
children of the Holy One!

Based on Psalm 24 ;Psalm 85:8-13 ; 2 Samuel 6:1-5,12-19 and Mark 6:14-29 , Ephesians 1:3-14
