Contents and Reviews

God, you made all things for singing
First find a steady beat
Our songs to you, Dear Lord, begin
Our music plumbs, then lifts and bears
Learn from all the songs of earth
For remembered music sounding
How did your journey start?
How did your journey start?
When Mary's baby cried
No one slept when Christ was born
Will the angels sing this year
If you would hear the angels sing
Clear out the cluttered heart
The Most Convincing Angels
How do you spell the word?
A Different Light Descends
How many times we start again
Jesus never stayed the same
All things of dust to dust return
Rising water always flowing
Too often, God, your name is used
Let your Spirit blow as wind
Let wonder be reborn
Let wonder be reborn
Have you not known? Have you not heard?
Come build with us a house of prayer
Lord, we use an ancient letter
As new parents in the night
When the sky was solid night
A World Too Vast to Chart
One human heart can hold
Since an empty heart collects
A heart that centers, Lord, on you
Let light and truth suffuse the mind
There is a dream that thrills Gods heart
Not all beauty succumbs to time
Not all beauty succumbs to time
You plant gardens
If it were terra-cotta with sloping sides
By the island of stone
Spider Mum
Home from the Grand Canyon
Soon enough comes the time of final parting
Surely this is resurrection
A late planting
