Lord of the heavens,
whose promises twinkle in the stars above,
You have set creation on a journey
that leads towards knowing
Your love and trust.
we come with questions
of our place amidst this universe.
we discover the abundance
of the love of God,
as each evening
we recall the precious moments of a day,
and with each new dawn
we rise to live out
all that faith might ask of us
as the Hoy Spirit leads and guides.
Under starlit skies
there are times
when we lose sight of Your promise,
determined that our will and desires
should have their place
in the scheme that is to unfold.
Our eyes can be clouded to Your vision,
and instead we prefer the comfort and sleep
that do no disturb
the status quo we prefer.
Your faith in us,
takes us by the hand
and wipes the sleep and mist away
that through faith in Christ
we might meet again
for all to know of Your love and promise
for the creation
lit by Your light.
