Lyrics

Eternal Wisdom, timely Friend,
each cell, each self, reveals your art,
and we, the children of your heart,
upon your faithfulness depend.

Within your boundless care and thought,
set free by your creative grace,
we marvel that you give us space
to grow, and move in ways untaught.

We do not know if we alone can
know ourselves, the world, and you,
or if, in other spaces too,
awakened minds have flexed and grown.

Your purpose, weaving dark and light,
as deep and restless as the sea,
is overcast with mystery,
and ranges far beyond our sight.

We only know, from all we find in Christ,
that you will not forget the earth or us,
but keep us yet in love,
in being, and in mind.
