“Be My Universe, Oh God”

Be my universe, oh God, let the circle of your love surround me

Let the reaches of your grace set the boundaries of my space,

And be my Universe — Surround me.

Lord, you knew me before my life begun

your love consumes me before the rising sun

with your Love — Surround me.

Be my universe, oh God, let the circle of your love surround me

Let the reaches of your grace set the boundaries of my space,

And be my Universe – Surround me.

Your hands, enfold me, I’m the clay upon your wheel

So gently mold me, with the lovin’ touch I feel

In your hands–Surround me.

Be my universe, oh God, let the circle of your love surround me

Let the reaches of your grace set the boundaries of my space,

And be my Universe — Surround me.

Maker of the Heavens, You can make a universe in me

Maker of the Heavens, You can make a universe in me

Maker of the Heavens, You can make a universe in me

Lover of the Ages, You can shed Your love abroad in me—

And Be my universe, oh God,

Let the circle of your love surround me

Let the reaches of your grace set the boundaries of my space,

And be my Universe — Surround me.
