SENSING GOD: A Contemporary Hymn to a familiar tune


(Tune :  To God be the Glory)

In awe of creation and Christ’s tender love
The Spirit surrounds us, its symbol the dove
The mystery may deepen as we seek His face
But still we may learn by encounter with grace

Chorus:
Giving thanks
For the gifts
Which are showered on us all
We are part of the Church
To respond to the call
We come seeking insight to how life might be
And trust to your message that all may live free

As we then encounter a world sick with sin
We sense that the answer may lie close within
The message Christ brought us is simple indeed
Place love at the centre is all that we need

Chorus: We give thanks…

We find in the Godhead a means to the end
With God as the life-force and Christ as a friend
Yet for Love to conquer, our part we must play
The Spirit of Christ must have somewhere to stay

Chorus:  We give thanks……
