Sacred Music Friday: Mothering God

First-Plymouth Church, Lincoln Nebraska. Text by Jean Janzen, Tune: Maryton by Henry Percy Smith, Arranged by Tom Trenney.

Mothering God, you gave me birth in the bright morning of this world.
Creator, source of every breath, you are my rain, my wind, my sun.

Mothering Christ, you took my form, offering me your food of light
Grain of of life, and grape of love, your very body for my peace.

Mothering Spirit, nurturing one, in arms of patience hold me close,
So that in faith I root and grow until I flower, until I know.
