God of the Ages
Our Deliverer and Provider
We bow in humility before your grace
You feed us with the divine
You quench our thirst with living water
A stream in the desert
You guide our feet through snares and snakes
You free us from slavery to sin and self and shame and death
You lead us the long way to holiness and home
Test our hearts
Have we exalted ourselves?
Have we forgotten you?
time of silent reflection and confession
Reveal the truth to us, O God
Exposed by your unrelenting light
Wiped clean with your Wilderness Wind
Grow in us wholehearted allegiance
that our blessing and devotion may never waver
that we may always recognize and trust your desire to do us good
