Who Is She?

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Brian Wren
Tune Name: COLD LAKE

Lyrics as Poetry

Who is She,
neither male nor female
maker of all things,
only glimpsed or hinted,
source of life and gender?

She is God,
mother, sister, lover;
in her love we wake,
move and grow,
are daunted, triumph,
and surrender.

Who is She,
mothering her people,
teaching them to walk,
lifting weary toddlers,
bending down to feed them?

She is Love,
crying in a stable,
teaching from a boat,
friendly with the lepers,
bound for crucifixion.

Who is She,
sparkle in the rapids,
coolness of the well,
living power of Jesus
flowing from the scriptures?

She is Life,
water, wind and laughter,
calm, yet never still,
swiftly moving Spirit,
singing in the changes.

Who is She,
mother of all nature,
longing to give birth,
gasping yet exulting
to a new creation?

She is Hope,
never tired of loving,
filling all with worth.
glad of our achieving,
lifting all to freedom.
