God, you made all things for singing ; First find a steady beat ; Our songs to you, Dear Lord, begin ; Our music plumbs, then lifts and bears ; Learn from all the songs of earth ; For remembered music sounding ; How did your journey start? ; How did your journey start? ; When Mary's baby cried ; No one slept when Christ was born ; Will the angels sing this year ; If you would hear the angels sing ; Clear out the cluttered heart ; The Most Convincing Angels ; How do you spell the word? ; A Different Light Descends ; How many times we start again ; Jesus never stayed the same ; All things of dust to dust return ; Rising water always flowing ; Too often, God, your name is used ; Let your Spirit blow as wind ; Let wonder be reborn ; Let wonder be reborn ; Have you not known? Have you not heard? ; Come build with us a house of prayer ; Lord, we use an ancient letter ; As new parents in the night ; When the sky was solid night ; A World Too Vast to Chart ; One human heart can hold ; Since an empty heart collects ; A heart that centers, Lord, on you ; Let light and truth suffuse the mind ; There is a dream that thrills Gods heart ; Not all beauty succumbs to time ; Not all beauty succumbs to time ; You plant gardens ; If it were terra-cotta with sloping sides ; By the island of stone ; Spider Mum ; Home from the Grand Canyon ; Soon enough comes the time of final parting ; Surely this is resurrection ; A late planting ; Notes on Meter, Scriptural References, and Occasion ; Metrical Index ; Index by Scripture References ; Index by Theme and Image ; Index by First Line and Title
