who was, and is, and is to come!
Before your unfathomable mystery, O God,
all eloquence of form and language is facile.
We cannot encompass you, for you encompass us.
So we fall silent,
and let the child deep within us be content
in the knowledge that we are known, wanted, and loved
by One infinitely greater than we shall ever be. Amen.
from Common Order, Church of Scotland
