We are equipped in heart and mind
(for Job 38:1-7 (34-41)
Tune: e.g. Saffron Walden ( CH4 553) , Childhood*** (615 in R&S)
1) We are equipped in heart and mind
to intervene and smooth the way;
yet vain ambition to control
rejects, neglects God’s love.
2)We may disrupt, deduct, destroy
the seasons’ regularity:
the rocks’ suppos’d eternal strength
deep-founded in God’s love.
3)We’ve cause to sing with trees who breathe
and grow and shade and feed and house
the birds who make sky heaven yet,
the Earth’s full of God’s love
4)With predators and prey we live
A woven tapestry diverse
threadbare through greed, injustice-worn
take warning from God’s love.
5)We will not know, know-how, God knows
Why bees with flowers dance for joy
We can describe and measure, yet
the answer’s in God’s love.
