You rule in highest heaven,
and walk amidst Your creation.
The night sky is Your purple robe,
and the stars the twinkling duals
that display the breadth of You care
and the markers of hope You place in human life.
From Your fiery throne
You offer wisdom
in the changing seasons
and the guiding of life;
You defend the weak
and lift the lowly and humble
that all may marvel
at the demonstration
of Your presence in their lives.
in the presence of You might and care
we acknowledge our faults and failings.
In what we say and do,
and sometimes even thought
we shame ourselves,
and hurt others.
We leave unsaid and undone
many things that would have brought joy to others
and to You,
not recognising Your Spirit
urging us to offer healing and care
in our activities.
Lord in Your mercy,
may we know Your forgiveness.
Lord of life,
with forgiveness You offer us all
a brand new day
to share Christ in the lives we lead.
