Holy, awesome and gracious God,
Your mighty hand reaches down to save.
This is the same hand that moved across the water and crafted the earth. It's the same hand that divided the sea so that the Israelites could pass through. The same hand redeemed David and steered the minds of the prophets. Your love has echoed throughout the generations, singing a song that our hearts know well but our minds forget as we become distracted by so many of the world's cares.
Forgive us, Lord, when we live as though you are a distant and cold reality. Repair our wounds, and guide our way to life everlasting, that we may rejoice in you, O God our Savior.
