You Can Sit With Us

 

God of creation, there at the start before the beginning of time

With no point of reference, you spoke to the dark and fleshed out the wonder of light

And as you speak, a hundred billion galaxies are born, in the vapor of your breath the planets form

If the stars were made to worship so will I

I can see your heart in everything you’ve made, every burning star, a signal fire of grace.

If creation sings your praises so will I

God of your promise, you don’t speak in vain, no syllable empty or void, for once you have spoken

All nature and science follow the sound of your voice

And as you speak, a hundred billion creatures catch Your breath, evolving in pursuit of what You said

If it all reveals your nature so will I

I can see your heart in everything You say, every painted sky a canvas of your grace

If creation still obeys you so will I

So will I , So will I

If the stars were made to worship so will I

If the mountains bow in reverence so will I

If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I

If the wind goes where you send it so will I

If the rocks cry out in silence so will I

If the sum of all our praises still falls shy

Then well sing again one hundred billion times

God of Salvation, you chased down my heart through all of my failures and pride

On a hill you created, the light of the world abandoned in darkness to die

And as you speak, a hundred billion failures disappear

Where you lost your life so I could find it here.

If you left the grave behind so will I

I can see your heart in everything You’ve done

Every part designed in a work of art called love

If you gladly chose surrender so will I

I can see your heart eight billion different ways

Every precious one, a child you died to save

If you gave your life to love them so will I

Like you would again a hundred billion times

But what measure could amount to Your desire, You’re the one who never leaves the one behind.
