1 Creating God, your fingers trace
the bold designs of farthest space.
Let sun and moon and stars and light
and what lies hidden praise your might.
2 Sustaining God, your hands uphold
earth's mysteries known or yet untold.
Let water's fragile blend with air,
enabling life, proclaim your care.
3 Redeeming God, your arms embrace
all those oppressed for creed or race.
Let peace, descending like a dove,
make known on earth your healing love.
4 Indwelling God, your gospel claims
one family with a billion names.
Let every life be touched by grace
until we praise you face to face.
