1. At times we’re like old-fashioned cameras
Seeing life as black or white.
At times we’re like deleted scanners
Printing only dull or bright.
At times we’re like some ancient printers
Choosing only dark or light
But each of us can look for rainbows
Viewing life with coloured sight.
2. At times it seems that people’s actions
Read as only black or white.
At times we think the lives of others
Come as only dark or light.
At times we feel that other’s thinking
Takes the form of dull or bright
But now we know that people’s rainbows
Disappear, at times, from sight.
3. If we look deep inside our rainbows
We can see love’s many hues.
Though living brings its pain and darkness
Love has options we can choose.
God dwells within each person’s rainbow
Planting in our hearts the clues
Which help us all to live more fully
Through the love which spells Good News.
