1 Restless Weaver, ever spinning
threads of justice and shalom;
dreaming patterns of creation
where all creatures find a home;
gathering up life's varied fibers–
every texture, every hue:
grant us your creative vision.
With us weave your world anew.
2 Where earth's fragile web is raveling
help us mend each broken strand.
Bless our urgent, bold endeavors
cleansing water, air, and land.
Through the Spirit's inspiration–
offering health where once was pain–
strengthen us to be the stewards
of your world knit whole again.
3 When our violent lust for power
ends in lives abused and torn,
from compassion's sturdy fabric
fashion hope and trust reborn.
Where injustice rules as tyrant,
give us courage, God, to dare
live our dreams of transformation.
Make our lives incarnate prayer.
4 Restless Weaver, still conceiving
new life0150–now and yet to be–
binding all your vast creation
in one living tapestry:
you have called us to be weavers.
Let your love guide all we do.
With your Reign of Peace our pattern,
we will weave your world anew.
