Teach me, God, to Wonder

Wonder 616393e0d69db6e367b1d4cdfd8be73f

Teach me, God, to wonder,
teach me, God, to see;
let your world of beauty capture me.
Praise to you be given,
love for you be lived,
life be celebrated, joy you give.

Let me, God, be open,
let me loving be,
let your world of people speak to me.
Praise to you be given,
love for you be lived,
life be celebrated, joy you give.
~  Walter Farquharson

“We are lost in wonder at all that you have done for us,
our Lord and mighty God.”     Revelations 15:3

Spring Song

SPRING SONG

O deep heart of sorrow
that sees no sign of life;
Buried in the snow drifts,
filled with winter’s strife;
Kept in stone cold darkness
bulbs are sleeping still,
Waiting for the turning
of the dreadful chill.

Suddenly we see it,
faint new green so dear;
Like whispers in the wind
signs of spring appear.
Shouts of joy in silence
bursting forth in song,
Promises of goodness,
carrying me along.

~~~ Anna Lin
