Creative Life, when you spoke forth
great power surged on high;
your signature of galaxies
was blazed across the sky.
You set the planets in their paths
and formed our lives with skill:
O recreate, till all rejoice
to orbit in your will!
Redeeming Life, your love was shown
while living here on earth:
unyielding, unrelenting love
which gives our souls new birth;
undying love, though crucified--
what luxury of grace!
So let our love abound till all
are sure of your embrace.
Enabling Life, whose Spirit seeks
the oft-fragmented soul,
unite all segments of our lives
till we are fully whole.
When Christians lived in true accord
your Holy Spirit came;
grant unity and power today,
and set our hearts aflame!
Eternal Life, to whom we rise,
your wisdom shows us how
the deeds of truly risen lives
serve people here and now.
Though burdens often weigh us down
our faith and hope still soar
till love draws us to life with you
both now and evermore!
