Creator and Poet (AOV 2/84)

Another song from Sandra Sears that you can hear a snippet at AOV or buy as a single download there. It sounds like she is channeling Carl Sagan, which is no bad thing. We’ve never sung it but it would be fine as a P&W song, or perhaps for Pentecost.

Verse 1

Father and Mother, creator and poet,

Speaking your wisdom in forest and glade:

Telling your glory in ocean and river

Pouring your pleasure on all you have made.

Verse 2

Christ of the cosmos, you sang into being,

Galaxies spinning through measureless space;

Coming among us and sharing our weakness;

Singing your songs of redemption and grace.

Verse 3

Spirit, you danced at the dawn of creation,

Rising, rejoicing on jubilant wings.

Yours is the rhythm of cycle and season,

Yours is the heartbeat of all living things.

Verse 4

Lord, you have made us of stardust and spirit,

Etching your image on ev’ry cell.

We are your lovesong, your poem and rhythm,

All cocreators, your story to tell.
