The rest is found in the Accompaniment Handbook.)
You dwell in a cloud of fire,
you are seated on the throne of sapphire,
surrounded by a choir of awesome beings:
God, worthy of praises.....(Refrain)
You hold the universe in your hand,
you make the clouds submissive chariots,
you command the wind to be your messenger:
God of all creation......(Refrain)
You spoke from the burning bush,
you kept the covenant with your people,
you led your children through the Red Sea:
God of salvation......(Refrain)
Lord God of priests, kings, and prophets,
temples of gold have been your dwelling,
yet you make your home in our hearts:
God of mercy......(Refrain)
To reconcile your people unto yourself,
you sent your Son among us;
through him your deep love is revealed:
God of redemption......(Refrain)
He accepted pain, death, and the grave;
by his blood he bought us new life;
on the third day he rose from the dead:
God of resurrection......(Refrain)
To you, Almighty One, filled with majesty,
and also with the Son and Holy Spirit,
now be all honor, all worship, all thanksgiving:
God, forever faithful......(Refrain)
