Spirit Blowing Through Creation
1. Spirit blowing through creation,
Spirit burning in the skies,
Let the hope of your salvation
fill our eyes;
God of splendor, God of glory,
You who light the stars above,
All the heavens tell the story
of Your love. (To verse 2)
2. As You moved upon the waters,
As You ride upon the wind,
Move us all Your sons and daughters,
As You shaped the hills and mountains,
Formed the land and filled the deep,
Let your hand renew and waken
all who sleep. (To refrain).
3. Love that sends the rivers dancing,
Love that waters all that lives,
Love that heals and holds and rouses
You are food for all Your creatures,
You are hunger in the soul,
In Your hand the brokenhearted
are made whole. (To verse 4).
4. All the creatures You have fashioned,
All that live and breathe in You,
Find their hope in Your compassion,
strong and true;
You, O Spirit of salvation,
You alone, beneath, above,
Come, renew Your whole creation
in Your love. (To refrain).
Spirit renewing the earth,
renewing the hearts of all people;
Burn in the weary souls,
blow through the silent lips,
come now awake us,
Spirit of God.
