    Creating God, Your Fingers Trace
    By Gere Hancock
    John Pavik, Piano

    Text of Hymn

    Creating God, Your Fingers Trace

    Creating God, your fingers trace
    The bold designs of farthest space;
    Let sun and moon and stars and light
    And what lies hidden praise your might.

    Sustaining God, your hands uphold
    Earth’s mysteries known or yet untold;
    Let water’s fragile blend with air,
    Enabling life, proclaim your care.

    Redeeming God, your arms embrace
    All now despised for creed or race;
    Let peace, descending like a dove,
    Make known on earth your healing love.

    Indwelling God, your gospel claims
    One family with a myriad names;
    Let every life be touched by grace
    Until we praise you face to face.
