The Spirit of God is both humble and gentle,
devoid of hypocrisy, sharp as a sword.
And when we are driven along by that Spirit
we live with God’s courage, embody God’s Word.
A pinch of yeast within the flour
A treasure hidden in the ground
We know not the day nor hour
When the pearl is finally found
Today, there’s an entire orchestra of assembled instruments, now called The Recycled Orchestra.read more
Can peace come on earth? Can we sow the seed?
Can we give it birth? Can it be our creed?
We ponder the answers; we long for Shalom;
We hunger for good-will abroad and at home.
God of the water and God of the land,
Work in us now and help us be Your hands,
Faithfully tending the seeds that we’ve sown –
In Your great garden, we’re never alone.
God loves everyone the same,
and knows every girl and boy by name.
God made every girl and boy
to sing and dance and play with joy,
sing and dance and play with joy.
The presence of God unfolds in minds
Exploring mystery’s haze.
Yes, God is found within the minds
That search for wisdom’s ways.
