Lyrics as Poetry

Teach me, God, to wonder,
teach me, God, to see.
Let your world of beauty capture me.

Praise to you be given.
Love for you be lived.
Life be celebrated, joy you give!


Let me, God, be open,
let me loving be.
Let your world of people speak to me.

Praise to you be given.
Love for you be lived.
Life be celebrated, joy you give!


Let me, God, be ready,
let me be awake.
In your world of loving, my place take.

Praise to you be given.
Love for you be lived.
Life be celebrated, joy you give!


Teach me, God, to know you,
hear you when you speak,
see you in my neighbour when we meet.

Praise to you be given.
Love for you be lived.
Life be celebrated, joy you give!
