Representative Text

1 God who touches earth with beauty,
make my heart anew.
With your Spirit recreate me
pure and strong and true.

2 Like your springs and running water,
make me crystal pure.
Like your rocks of tow’ring grandeur,
make me strong and sure.

3 Like your dancing waves in sunlight,
make me glad and free.
Like the straightness of the pine trees,
let me upright be.

4 Like the arching of the heavens,
lift my thoughts above.
Turn my dreams to noble action,
ministries of love.

5 God who touches earth with beauty,
make my heart anew.
Keep me ever, by your Spirit,
pure and strong and true.
