God, Alone

You Alone, O Eternal

You alone, O Eternal, are worthy of our praise;
in You alone we place our faith and trust;
on You alone do we rely.

When evil threatens to overwhelm us,
You are our rock, our fortress, our secure and solid Ground.

You are our Shelter amid the Storm;
our very-present Help;
You steady us when we slip and trip,
and raise us up when we fall.

You are the Peace-Bringer,
the Hope Restorer,
the Awakener
who summons us from deathly sleep;
the Faithful Lover
who will never turn away.

You are the Great Revealer,
the Fierce Truth-Teller;
Your fearless honesty
breaks down every lie, delusion, and deceit.

If we flee to the farthest reaches of the earth,
or hide ourselves in its coldest depths
You are there.

You are our God,
our Source of Strength and Wisdom;
the Sustainer of our souls,
the Guardian of our lives.

You are the deep and the celestial;
the radiant light and the infinite dark;
You are the hunger and the fullness;
the thirst and its quenching.

You are the tumult and the shouting,
the stillness and the quiet.
You are the song and the silence.

You are the All in All.

You alone, O Eternal,
are worthy of our praise;
in You alone we place our faith and trust;
on You alone do we rely.

Amen.
