Out of season

These hymn lyrics have been lurking around the edge of my consciousness for a while, never quite satisfactory, nowhere near complete. Then, of a sudden, the spark of a ‘completing’ idea arrived and this simple hymn is the result.

It flows from my years of living in Wellington, the capital city of Aotearoa New Zealand, where I still travel to – an hour by train from Kapiti Coast – to attend my faith community, and see the doctor, dentist and optician I’ve been with for decades!

There’s a local saying, “You can’t beat Wellington on a good day!” This hymn celebrates that simple gift, and our place as city dwellers.
