God Is One, Unique and Holy

Lyrics as Poetry

God is One, unique and holy,
endless dance of love and light:
only source of mind and body,
starcloud, atom, day and night:
everything that is or could be
tells God’s anguish and delight.

God is Oneness-by-Communion:
never distant or alone,
at the heart of all belonging:
loyal friendship, loving home,
common mind and shared agreement,
common loaf and sung Shalom.

Through the pain that loving Wisdom
could foresee, but not forestall,
God is One, though torn and anguished
in the Christ’s forsaken call,
One through death and resurrection,
One in Spirit, One for all.
