Volume 1, Issue 2, May 1994


This hymn was written by Judith Fetter in 1985 and may be sung to the tune of St. Petersburg.
O God whose first creative word set universes into place,
who stretched across the whirling void infinities of time and space;
O speak to our chaotic day
a word of ordered grace we pray.

O Christ who came the living word,
proclaiming love's redeeming power,
who drained the tempter's bitter cup
and triumphed in earth's darkest hour;
O speak to our despair and pain
a word that kindles hope again.

O Spirit, everpresent word,
God's agent of transforming grace,
who seeks to enter every heart with light its darkness to replace;
O speak within the hearts we raise
a joyful word of faith and praise.
