Lyrics as Poetry

GENERAL USE VERSION


Holy One, O Holy One,
your tender love creatively
has called to be all that has life.
Holy One.

Holy One, O Holy One,
we cannot know the nature of
the days ahead, the pains and joys.
Holy One.

Holy One, O Holy One,
while life is ours we’d blessing take,
we’d blessing give so offer praise.
Holy One.
