1. The stars in endless multitudes -
oblivious to our ignorance -
sing ceaselessly their endless tunes
of praise in glorious radiance.
2. They use no words where words must fail,
yet in their very essence bright
their songs do wondrous truths convey
of One who is their Source and Light.
3. Where wounded silence forms a wall,
a barrier words cannot assail,
may those besieged look up enthralled
and see the song they cannot hear.
4. Now in your Image, let us shine
and add our light to heaven's display.
That those who seek may look and find
the Hope that lies beyond the night.
5. O Breath Divine, inspire us then
with every breath to live and love
a life-song that will ever sing
of One who is both Life and Love!
6. How beautiful that harmony
of life-songs all together raised
in living, loving symphony
with all creation, to your praise!
Based on the Psalm for 3rd Sunday in Lent
