When In Creation

I've been meaning to post this all week. Last Sunday we did our Tsunami emphasis in worship. There were already a handful of Tsunami-inspired hymns to choose from. The following is the one we sang. Sorry, I can't seem to find the name of the author anywhere. It is to the tune KINGSFOLD.

When In Creation

When in creation life is lost, the power of God seems weak.
When young and old are swept away by rivers in the streets,
We seek the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day,
and pray to God that lives be saved and hope will find a way.

Where is the goodness of our God when seas force life to die?
Where is the powerful love of God when people hurt and cry?
Lord, how thy wonders are displayed, where e'er I turn my eye,
O God, our help in ages past, be with the world today.

How can the glory of our God be known through tragedy,
when water, rock, and sand be made to kill humanity?
While all that borrows life from thee is ever in they care,
O God, where were you on that day when darkness shook our sphere?

When in creation life is lost, we turn to God for peace,
and seek the one who came to serve the greatest and the least,
O Christ whose presence comes to us in the Spirit's flowing power,
abide with us and give us strength to face life's darkest hour.
