L: When God speaks, all creation answers:
P: the pale winter moon cries, ‘Glory!’
the sun hums a song as it warms the earth.
L: When God speaks, lives are changed:
P: those held hostage by oppression are set free;
the voiceless shout the story of salvation.
L: When God speaks, everything is turned inside out:
P: the wise learn the language of grace from little children;
the strong take lessons from the powerless.
