God has place this wonderful creation in our hands. As U2 sings, "It's a beautiful day, don't let it slip away." We have this one life to live on this beautiful planet so enjoy these reflections on God, faith, life, and music. "After the flood all of the colors came out. It's a beautiful day."

We Lift Our Voice


We lift up our voice to worship You, our God.
We lift up our voice, crying Alleluia.

Eternal Spirit
              dwell in us and beyond us,
              renew and strengthen us,
              comfort us in times of joys and sorrows,
              inspire in us creative acts,
              show us You Way.
We lift up our voice to worship You, our God.


Jesus our Savior,
              living and dying with us,
              calling forth Your Reign,
              showing us how to build communities of faith,
              teaching us to welcome everyone to the table,
              setting at liberty those who are oppressed.
We lift up our voice to worship You, our God.

The Heavens and Earth declare the glory of Your name.
              the flowers whine forth their love for You
                           spilling their fragrance throughout the land,
              the trees reach out above and below to You
                           breathing out new life,
              the plants burst forth with fruit and seed
                           filling all the earth with Your life,
              the morning sun brings the singing of Your praises
                           as a symphony of song bursts joyfully from the birds of the air,
              the midnight rays of the stars and moon proclaim You are God
                           as the night creatures hurry forth.
We lift up our voice to worship You, our God.
We lift up our voice, crying Alleluia.
All praise to the God of all creation,
Eternal Spirit, our Great God.
