CREATION SPEAKS:A Contemporary Hymn to a familiar tune


(tune: O Perfect Love)

Creation speaks, surpassing understanding
Light in the darkness, time and space entwine
We who inherit vistas of true glory
Sense growing wonder for the works divine

Fill now our minds with wakening comprehension
Fill too our hearts, with all that love might bring
Grant that our senses tune to hidden beauty
Causing real music in the hymns we sing

Heeding the call to follow in Christ’s footsteps
Offering commitment for the things we pray
Taking the challenge to be true disciples
Taking the cross to follow come what may

Teach us the way to show due care and reverence
For all we hold in trust for those to come
Planning ahead as we build for the future
Holding a vision for a world begun
