God Is Within

1.  From beginning to each ending

God is within.

Human and divine keep blending;

God is within.

In our coming and our going,

In our learning and our knowing,

As we struggle in our growing

God is within.

 

2.  When supportive help is needed

God is within.

When our limits are exceeded

God is within.

When life is a hopeless jigsaw,

When we cry, “We cannot take more,”

When downtrodden we survive, for

God is within.

 

3.  When we cease from being greedy

God is within;

When we look to serve the needy

God is within.

When we use our wealth for sharing,

When we stand with those despairing,

When we live our lives in caring

God is within.

 

4.  When we act with human virtue

God is within.

Strive for fine ideals we value,

God is within.

When we guard and guide each other

With compassion, we uncover

Our true self and we discover

God is within.
