The Universe in God

All creation sings a story

Of great splendours to declare;

When we contemplate its beauty

We are called forth into prayer.

We, enchanted, stand in silence;

God discovered everywhere.


When we stumble on new knowledge,

When new insights help us grow,

We are quick to re-discover

Just how much we do not know.

But the Universe smiles gently,

As our theories come and go.


Outer space and inner being

Both have secrets they conceal.

Galaxies so grimly awesome,

Deep emotions that we feel –

All in God are judged as sacred;

It is God they all reveal.


Ageless mysteries still excite us;

Time and space we must explore.

God the ‘Presence’ and ‘Surrounding’,

God the ever wondrous ‘More’ –

Not just found by science labours,

But in praise when we adore.
