Lord,

1. It’s not just that you make us:
You’re creation.

2. It’s not just that you’re timeless:
You are time.

3. It’s not just that you’re living:
You are life, Lord.

4. It’s not just that you light our way:
You shine.

5. It’s not just that you feed us:
You are bread, Lord.

6. It’s not just that you give us drink:
You’re wine.

7. It’s not just that you care for us:
You’re love, Lord.

8. It’s not just that I’m yours, Lord:
You are mine.
