Timeless God, you hold our story:
weave our dreams to your design.
Let the untold future beckon -
old and young your living signs.

Come the day that love has conquered,
when the hosts of heaven sing,
may our praises be the echo
of our earthly offering.

Gracious God, you offer wisdom
far beyond our human minds.
Yet you trust us, in our weakness,
to bring insight to the blind.

Come the day …

Caring God, you speak in Jesus
of abundant life for all.
As our human powers falter
keep us focused on your call.

Come the day …

God eternal, hear our longing
to be heralds of your grace:
till Creation's restless longing
finds its peace in your embrace.

Come the day …

Tune: Calon Lan
