God our Father

 

God our Father,
Holy One,
You love us all
And sent your Son.

Mary, Mother,
Holy Maid,
You heard God’s message
And obeyed.

Jesus, Saviour,
Holy Child,
Through you all things
Are reconciled.

Spirit, Helper,
Holy Dove,
You unify us
In God’s love.

Lord God,
In silent prayer,
I sometimes feel

As if my mind
Will burst
With wordless joy,

Or that my heart
Will break
With wordless grief.

Then my soul
Melts away
In wordless bliss,

To unify
With yours,
In wordless love.
