God, You Spin the Whirling Planets

2 Corinthians 5:17 - 19
FranzJoseph Haydn, 1797
God, You spin the whirling planets, Fill the seas and spread the
Mold the mountains, fashion blossoms, Call forth sunshine, wind,
We, created in Your image, Would a true reflection be
Of Your justice, grace, and mercy And the truth that makes us free.
You have called us to be faithful In our life and ministry.
We respond in grateful worship Joined in one community.
When we blur Your gracious image, Focus us and make us whole.
Healed and strengthened as Your people, We move onward toward Your
God, Your word is still creating, Calling us to life made new.
Now reveal to us fresh vistas Where there's work to dare and do.
Keep us clear of all distortion. Polish us with loving care.
Thus, new creatures in Your image, We'll proclaim Christ everywhere.
