Worship

God, You are so good, so mighty and wise.
You give so much to us, so much from Your loving, generous hand.

Father, we make a mess.
     We test Your forgiveness;
     We resist Your love;
     We determine to go our own way.
And still, You never change.

You are sovereign, and Your love extends to all people,
     through all generations.

You are Ruler over all.
     The waves crash at Your command;
     The sun sets upon Your word;
     The leaves whither in Your time.
And yet, You do not love them as You love us.

You are Creator of all things, the most intelligent, omniscient
     designer of all.

You formed us in perfect goodness and love.
     We are the only ones who defy Your will.
     We are the only ones who curse Your name.
     We are the ones who selfishly corrupt and use others You have made.
And still, we are the ones You love most;
     the ones You proclaim whole by the life of Your Son.

Forgive us, O Lord, for our foolishness, our hatred,
     our arrogance, and our fear.
Forgive us for our rejection of the One Whom we need most --
     You.

God, You are so good, so mighty and wise.
You give so much to us, so much from Your loving, generous hand.
