God of the Sparrow

“God of the Sparrow” was written by Jaroslav Vajda (1919-2008), one of the leading hymn writers in the 20th century and arguably the preeminent Lutheran hymn writer of his day. The hymn inspires me to become my better self. This is the text of this beautiful hymn.

God of the sparrow
God of the whale
God of the swirling stars
How does the creature say Awe
How does the creature say Praise

God of the earthquake
God of the storm
God of the trumpet blast
How does the creature cry Woe
How does the creature cry Save

God of the rainbow
God of the cross
God of the empty grave
How does the creature say Grace
How does the creature say Thanks

God of the hungry
God of the sick
God of the prodigal
How does the creature say Care
How does the creature say Life

God of the neighbour
God of the foe

God of the pruning hook
How does the creature say Love
How does the creature say Peace

God of the ages
God near at hand
God of the loving heart
How do your children say Joy
How do your children say Home
