No mortal mind can grasp Godís ways
Hymn by Janine AppelgateMe Bless the Cross LM (Shaker tune, 1847)
No mortal mind can grasp God´s ways,
But only in amazement gaze
At what a vibrant tapestry
Is woven from humanity.
God intertwines with every line
An intricate and fine design;
The patterns of our lives reveal
His loving touch to bind and heal.
And yet when burdened down by care
Our sight is blurred by dark despair;
With clouded vision, all we see
Reflects our own mortality.
O light of Light! O love most kind!
Illuminate the blinded mind:
Enlighten us that we may be
Partakers of your mystery.
O Father, with your gracious Son
And Spirit ever three in one,
May you our hope and vision be,
That we may always dwell with Thee.
