💛

1. Lord,
You give me every breath I take;
This precious world,
And everything you make.

2. You give me food and water,
All I need;
Your only Son –
His life and death, my creed.

3. Lord,
You give me faith, and hope, and prayer;
Your light, your truth;
Your peace beyond compare.

4. You even give your Spirit,
From above;
And best of all, Lord God,
You give me love.

💛

The dream of angels

❤️

1. God is not the dream of angels,
Nor a vision,
Nor a creed.

2. God is not just wishful thinking,
Nor a longing,
Nor a need.

3. God is neither male nor female,
Storm, nor earthquake,
Fire, nor flood.

4. God is Father, Son, and Spirit,
One forever —
God is Love.

❤️
