Infinite wisdom, Lord of creation
fashioned the universe, planned for all time
with sacred reason ordered each season,
giving all life a rhythm and rhyme.
Stars in their courses and earth's resources,
children of God for their days on the earth,
cycles of worship, work and of building
giving their efforts both substance and worth.
Places for praising, churches and temples,
houses of prayer built by those who believe,
honor their Maker, guide generations
by constant faith will God's promise receive.
People of God who inherit the blessings
passed from the saints who have walked on faith's road,
speak in respect and sing in thanksgiving
extolling the gifts forebearers bestowed.
Glory to God for all lives in this fellowship,
who are redeemed by God's mercy and grace.
Celebrate always with songs of rejoicing
covenant people who God's love embrace.
