Healing river of the Spirit,
bathe the wounds that living brings.
Plunge our pain, our sin, our sadness
deep beneath your sacred springs.
Weary from the restless searching
that has lured us from your side,
we discover in your presence
peace the world cannot provide.
Christ, of God unseen the image,
born before creation's birth;
through whom all things were created,
all that lives in heaven and earth -
realms and rulers, thrones, dominions,
powers great and forces small
through and for him made and fashioned -
he is in and over all.
