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.

❤️

I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth
(Joel 2:30; NIV). 

1. Father,
Creation exalts you:
Rocks break
When your hurricanes blow.

2. Jesus,
The wild waves obey you;
Earth quakes,
And your living springs flow.

3. Spirit,
The universe serves you:
Flames leap,
And your visions outpour.

4. Threefold God,
Reigning in heaven:
You speak —
And we bow down, in awe.
