1.  Colorful Creator, God of mystery,

thank you for the artist teaching us to see

glimpses of the meaning of the commonplace,

visions of the holy in each human face.

2.  Harmony of age, God of list’ning ear,

thank you for composers tuning us to hear

echoes of the Gospel in the songs we sing,

sounds of love and longing from the deepest spring.

3.  Author of our journey, God of near and far,

praise for tale and drama telling who we are,

stripping to the essence struggles of our day,

times of change and conflict when we choose our way.

4.  God of truth and beauty, Poet of the Word,

may we be creators by the Spirit stirred,

open to your presence in our joy and strife,

vessels of the holy coursing through our life.
