Come, Teach Us, Spirit of Our God

seeking new images of creativity in learning

Tune Name: TEANAU

Lyrics as Poetry

Come, teach us, Spirit of our God,
the language of your way,
the lessons that we need to live,
the faith for every day.Excite our minds to follow you,
to trace new paths in store,
new flight paths for our spirit space,
new marvels to explore:Engage our wits to dance with you,
to leap from logic’s base,
to capture insight on the wing,
to sense your cosmic grace:Inspire our spark to light from you,
to catch creation’s flair,
new artistry to celebrate,
new harmonies to dare:Delight our hearts to worship you,
to learn compassion’s code,
to live in context of your love,
great teacher who is God!
