our God, we pray with sighs more deep

Try singing this prayer to the tune ST PETER
to which we sing “In Christ There Is No East or West.”

Our God, we pray with sighs more deep
than our words can convey,
and know the Spirit intercedes
to name what we can’t say.

We hope for what we know to want
and wait with faith to see,
Your answer to our praying bold
made real in what will be.

We trust, our God, the mystery
we cannot comprehend—
believe You work within all things
Your goodness to extend.

So in the midst of all we face
we turn to You again,
entrust to You our hopes and fears
and then we say amen.
