1 God of creation, all-powerful, all-wise,
Lord of the universe rich with surprise,
Maker, Sustainer, and Ruler of all,
we are your children—-you hear when we call.
2 God of the ages, through time’s troubled years
you are the One in whom history coheres;
nations and empires your purpose fulfill,
moving in freedom, yet working your will.
3 God of redemption, who wrought our rebirth,
called out your Church from the ends of the earth,
still you are Savior--put darkness to flight;
overcome sin by salvation’s pure light!
4 God of your people, your Word still stands fast--
do for us now as you’ve done in the past!
Yours is the kingdom--your triumph we claim,
challenging evil in Jesus’ strong name.
5 God of our now, all our trust is in you,
Covenant-God, ever faithful and true;
Sovereign Creator, Redeemer and Lord,
now and forever your name be adored!
