Awesome God

Awesome God,

we glimpse you in the glory of creation,

in flashes of insight as science reveals

more and yet more of wonder

beyond our comprehension.


Yet what we perceive is an infinitesimal part of all that is.

We are silenced, for words are so inadequate;

we are miniscule in the light of your being.


Yet we can know you

for you reach out to us,

often as a light in the darkness.


Open the eyes of our inmost heart

to know and love you,

foundation of our very being,

not just in the glory of creation,

but in our companions on the road.


Enable us to reflect your light to others

that, together, we may play our part

in the mud as well as the glory of your kingdom.
