Out of the water – v3

Out of the water
came the dry earth
all life beginning
as our own birth
from darkness to light

Life from the waters
the chaos, the maelstrom
God creating, speaking
let there be light
let creation emerge.

Out of the water
our journey, our path
the struggles, the trials
keeping us down
our joy hidden.

Life from the waters
a quickening, breath,
if we turn unto God
walking, faithful
focused on the Lord.
