A Creed

I believe O God of all gods
In the phases of the moon
The power of the stars
The strength of the sun
The swell and ebbing of the sea
The flowing of the air
The depth of the earth
The heart of fire
         The heart of love
                  The love of Christ

I believe O God of all gods
That you never cease your self disclosure
in your longing to be known by us your creatures
That fire of presence
too bright to be born by us
Is tempered, confined
In human being,
Word made flesh
Wonder of wonders
         God cries
                  God laughs
                           dances, sings, sighs
                                    dies, lives, fills all creation
all within     all beyond
time and matter
matter and time, hearts aflame
