God Of The Stratosphere

God of the stratosphere, sun, moon and planets,
planner, creator, of function and form,
God of the mystical, God of the physical,
felt in the heartbeat of stillness and storm.

God the approachable, closer than breathing,
spirit indwelling, our strength and our guide,
God inspirational, focus of thinking
light ever shining no darkness can hide.

God the invisible, presence all-seeing,
spirit enabling, our helper and friend,
God of all hopefulness, never despairing,
constantly caring, whose love has no end.
