Sacred source

1. Lord, you are my sacred source,
My Maker, and my God.
You give me life, and breath, and food;
A mind, a heart, a voice.

2. You give me faith; a conscience, Lord;
Remorse, forgiveness, hope.
You give me independence, and invention,
Insight, choice.

3. You give me trials and sorrows, Lord;
You give me joy and peace.
You give me worship, prayer, and praise;
Delight, and comfort, too.

4. You give me help; salvation, Lord,
And your unfailing love.
Then you embrace my soul in death,
For I am one with you.

The God of love and peace will be with you
(2 Corinthians 13:11; NLT).

1. Just as water finds its way,
May your love stream through my heart,
And flow to others, as I try
To see you, Lord, in all, each day.

May your peace flood through my soul,
And spread to others, as I try
To show them, Lord, its perfect source.
