Countless faces

There is […] one God and Father,
who is over all and in all
and living through all.
(Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

1. One God, with countless faces,
We look at you in all;
But we don’t recognise you, Lord,
Because our love is small.

2. One God, with countless voices,
We hear you every day;
But we don’t recognise you, Lord,
No matter what we say.

3. One God, with countless sorrows,
We meet you everywhere;
But we don’t recognise you, Lord,
Though we believe we care.

4. One God, through countless ages,
We claim to long for you;
But we don’t recognise you, Lord,
No matter what you do.

Your arms

The eternal God is your refuge,
and his everlasting arms are under you
(Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).

Lord,

Your arms are wrapped
around us all;

But you hold us
so gently

That unless we seek you earnestly
each day,

We may not recognise
your constant presence.

and they recognised him
