All you make

 

Lord, 
All you make
Becomes your sacred body; 

All living things 
Are born
Within your mind; 

And all of us
Are temples 
Of your Spirit,

For your heart 
Beats within 
All humankind.

Do not judge

 

Do not judge 
Or condemn,

But be kind,
And forgive.

For the mercy
We show

To all those
Who live

Is the measure
We’ll get, 

Not from those 
On life’s way,

But from God,
For eternity –

So, don’t
Delay!

Each life conceived

 

You are each life conceived; 
Each messy birth;

You are the air we breathe;
All life on earth. 

You are the light we see;
The storms we brave;

You are each heartfelt plea;  
The peace we crave.

You are our comfort here;  
Our daily bread; 

You are the fire we fear;        
The judge we dread.

You are the way to live; 
The pain we face;

You are the love we give;
The source of grace.

You are the food we eat;
The cup we drink;

You are the truth we seek –
Our missing link.

Victory

 

No eye can bear
Your dazzling light,

No flesh survive 
Your cleansing flame;

No mind can grasp
Your secret thoughts;

No heart presume
To speak your name;

No soul can know
Your mystery,

Yet we can share
Your victory.
