Elbow deep in mud – v2

God of creation
working the dust,
elbow deep in mud
loving the earth
you worked the garden
the world with love
forming us like you
your breath gave us life

God of salvation
working here on earth
elbow deep in mud
living here with us
coming as the babe
growing, teaching
the man to save us
to redeem us at last
