At your command, O God,
heaven and earth bear witness:
We sing of love
but romance death.
We reap in faith
but sow distrust
We pray for peace
but cherish gossip.
By your grace we would follow
heaven and earth’s witness:
Saying “no” to evil, to spite, to cowardice.
Pledging “yes” and “yes” to life before the throne of God.
Yes and yes to life in common purpose
with heaven and earth.
Yes by God. Yes to God.
Yes, Holy God. Let your wisdom be vindicated
as we dance in life, weep in life,
hold fast in life, and die in life. Forever in your life.
Let heaven and earth bear witness.
