Creating God

Creating God, your fingers trace

The bold designs of farthest space:

Let sun and moon and stars and light

And what lies hidden praise your might.

 

Sustaining God, your hands enfold

Earth’s mysteries no one yet has told;

But waters fragile blend with air

Enabling life, proclaim your care.

 

Redeeming God, your arms embrace

All now despised for creed or race;

Let peace descending like a dove

Make known on earth your healing love.

 

Indwelling God, your gospel praise

One family with a billion names;

Let every life be touched by grace

Until we praise you face to face

 

Creating God, your fingers trace

The bold designs of farthest space:

Let sun and moon and stars and light

And what lies hidden praise your might.
