Mystical Elements

I rejoice in You, O my God!
I praise the name of my creator!
For You have made me in Your image
and crowned me with Your steadfast love.
Your grace and mercy are before me and behind me
And Your faithfulness has never departed from me.

You have led me through fire
and have kindled Your burning Presence in the depths of my being.

You have brought me through troubled seas to cleanse me
and You quench my thirst with living water.

You formed me out of the dust of the earth
and made Yourself the ground of my being and the rock of my redemption.

The fresh wind of Your Spirit and the low whisper of Your love
give me life and breath and join me to You forevermore.
