Sandāfrom Psalm 29
Ascribe power to creation, you powers.
Ascribe glory and strength to power.
Give thanks to grace for correction with mercy.
Becoming is the beginning of being.
Being is the beginning of soul;
soul, the mirror for life.
The right to life is for all in the law.
The flash of lightning sings of wonder in darkness.
Light shows instant weightless motion as spirit
Spirit sings sound as the crack breaks
the back of somber stillness
and the voice of thunder rumbles
across the sky with the wind;
under the clouds.
The voice of power is strong.
It sings with splendor.
This song breaks the redwood,
the tree that could not be broken.
Hills are moved by walls of water.
The mountain is consumed by the creation of cloud.
A volcano spits flames of fire higher
than imagination had seen before the event.
The foundation of earth is shaken by the quake.
The quake shakes land until constructs crumble.
Heat from fire makes strong trees writhe.
It strips the forest bare.
All are crying “Have mercy”
in this temple of soul.
Light shines enthroned by sun
above the water after the flood.
The power of creation permeates
life in time forever.
The Creator gives strength
to the people of creation;
Strength is given
with the blessings of peace.
