How can we ever understand the mystery of Your love, O God?

How can we ever estimate

the value of Your compassion and mercy?

In our weaknesses and brokennesses,

in our strengths and wholenesses,

we find the touch of Your support and creative energy.

In our fears and suffering, in our joys and pleasures,

we find the moistness of Your tears

and the percussion of Your laughter.

In our failures and despair, in our successes and dreams,

we find the comfort of Your forgiveness

and the inspiration of Your Spirit.


These are gifts beyond measure,

and we can only respond with joyful praise.

You are the home we long for,

the family where we discover that we truly belong

the hearth where we are warmed and renewed

And we worship You with our whole being, wonderful and loving God.
