Anthem text
God is the poet, Word of creation,
conjuring wonders and waking the dawn,
noting and naming, breath-taking beauty,
God is the singer and life is the song.

New fashioned creatures, called into being,
rise up exulting in joy and surprise.
Summoned from mystery, we join their singing,
opening our lips as we open our eyes.

From our creation, music enchants us,
moving our spirits to seek and to learn,
till grace-filled journeys end in beginning:
dying, we rise, and to mystery return.

God, grant us wisdom, formed in your image,
poets, composers, in all that we do:
help us to fathom worlds past our knowing.
May our creating be worthy of you.
