Into a world of dark

Into a world of dark,
waste and disordered space,
he came, a wind that moved
across the waters’ face.

2. The Spirit in the wild
breathed, and a world began.
From shapelessness came form,
from nothingness, a plan.

3. Light in the darkness grew;
land in the water stood;
and space and time became
a beauty that was good.

4. Into a world of doubt,
through doors we closed, he came,
the breath of God in power
like wind and roaring flame.

5. From empty wastes of death,
on love’s disordered grief,
light in the darkness blazed
and kindled new belief.

6. Still, with creative power,
God’s Spirit comes to give
a pattern of new life;
our worlds begin to live.
