All creation sings Your praise,
And the trees and mountains are Your musicians.
They bellow the answer to Your whispers-
The rocks cry out the promptings of Your being.
With Your earth-chest You heave massive sighs of hurricane breath
And fill our lungs with the witness of Who You Are.
We remember You best with arms outstretched:
open wide - offering all of You
open wide - welcoming all of us
Your words are like water to our desert-souls:
"Come ye empty-handed! You need not a thing-
I only want you, and you only need Me."
For what You've done, we are Yours forever
But when we forget, help us remember
How You meet us on the road to lift our faces from our shame
And kiss them with Your laughter.
Forgive us when we hurt You,
And please, never stop welcoming us back into Your arms.
