The beginning of wisdom - 2

Beginning with awareness
that I am but clay
dust of the earth
given life by your breath

Fear of the Lord
Creator of all, eternal
able to move the oceans
by your word, into their place

Light, creation
by His word, power
by His breath, my joy
looking up into His face

The beginning of wisdom
walking in your grace
aware I need you
to save me from myself

Only your power
the depths of your love
lifting me from the dust
called to heaven above
