God of the Waters

 

Sparkling, rumbling, swishing

A bouncing, dancing, stream

In hidden celebration

Of life that’s truly free

 

A little girl exploring

Spies the happy display

Joins the joyful dancing

Delighted in the play

 

Vast Pacific Ocean

Mighty, majestic and grand

Your forceful waves are crashing

Against the cliffs and sand

 

A woman’s heart seeks solace

She finds near you God’s peace

With power and with passion

Your soothing waves don’t cease

 

Mighty Lord of every ocean

Kind Lord of every stream

Both very great and small things

You’ve made to speak to me

 

For my joy and for my comfort

Your waters always rise

Their beauty and their power

Fill my heart and eyes

 

You draw me ever closer

By the waters that you’ve made

Whether by flowing or by crashing

They’re calling out your name

 

Then I join in with them

As I shout and I sing

To the glorious God of the waters

Grateful praises to my King

Welcome, Spring!

 

Spring, burst open with your symphony

Of tender grass and youthful leaves

That yearn to explode into sight

Declaring new life to all who might

See with open hearts and curious minds

What God sees

 

Cherry blossom, soft and pink

Whispers hope as it withers and sinks

To the ground it goes

Sacrificing self to usher in the flow

Of things to come as God is moving

We wait for more

 

Revealing mysteries large and small

Through grass and leaf and blossom all

God showing us transcendent truths

In the joy of spring and its blissful youth

Hope, splendor, new birth is here

To set us free
