WE ARE GOLDEN
We are stardust, we are golden
Crosby, Stills, and Nash.
when you took Abraham by the hand
and showed him the depths of the heavens
and the endless stars
whose numbers none can count,
you had already known and named
his descendants who would outnumber
As the psalmist says,
“all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.”
We are billion year-old carbon
reimagined, knit together,
fearfully and wonderfully made.
A miracle indeed,
yet more miraculous still
made in your image
as golden as the stars.
We are not worthy
to be called your children
yet through our Lord, Jesus Christ,
you count us worthy!
Lead us as you led Abraham,
to dream dreams,
to see visions,
to step out in faith,
to be swept up into your great purposes,
to be worthy of our inheritance
as heirs of the promise.
