When our world of thought lies shattered
As its truths fragment and die
We will trust the mystery’s oneness
Held within the Earth and sky.
What we once conceived as solid
We now know is full of space,
What seems static and unmoving
Science shows is not the case.
All we thought was unconnected
Now is linked with cosmic thread.
What was seen as unrelated
Genes unite as one instead.
Faith that claims to be rock-solid
Holds some parts but not the whole.
Only through the Spirit’s flowing
Can we find our journey’s goal.
Can our faith survive this turmoil?
Can it reverence newfound laws?
Yes, when wonder is our helpmate
Aiding us to stop and pause.
Glory be for sacred mystery.
Praise for all life’s wondrous ways.
Celebrate emerging knowledge
Woven in a ring of praise.
