We are of God

We are of God!
Look beyond the day;
listen for the change.
The world is harsh;
loss, suffering abound,
yet God believes!

We are worthy.
We are of God!
We truly do not know . . . 
who we are, or
who others are;
God enlightens us to each other! 

The wilderness is all around,
yet we are safe.
We are of God!
We are ministers of God’s word;
not literally, but of the spirit.
Let us hold fast our faith.

Lord, awaken us;
help us make our world . . .
Your Garden of Eden.
We are of God!
We are here to shepherd . . .
his people, his earth.

We are of God!
