Lyrics as Poetry

Rejoice in God who once upon a time
(before all time!) took love to shape a dream
and let it wake into the cosmic Word
that named the earth,
with love as living theme.Give thanks to Christ who calls us to be one
and shares our humanness to show us how
to keep the dream alive, the vision clear:
a world at peace,
the human race at play.Pray that the Holy Spirit will pro(!)ceed,
empowering us to see Christ’s mission through
and set the dream to song, enact the Word,
put flesh on hope,
make God’s intent come true.Let not, O God, the vision we have caught
fade as we rise, nor let it die away;
give us the faith with passion to pursue
that dream’s fulfilment
in the light of day.
