Bring many names, beautiful and good;
celebrate in parable and story,
holiness in glory, loving, living God:
hail and hosanna, bring many names.

Strong mother God, working night and day,
planning all the wonders of creation,
setting each equation, genius at play:
hail and hosanna, strong mother God.

Warm father God, hugging every child,
feeling all the strains of human living,
caring and forgiving till we're reconciled:
hail and hosanna: warm father God.

Old, aching God, grey with endless care,
calmly piercing evil's new disguises,
glad of new surprises, wiser than despair:
hail and hosanna, old, aching God.

Young, growing God, eager still to know,
willing to be changed by what you've started,
quick to be delighted, singing as you go:
hail and hosanna, young, growing God.

Great, living God, never fully known
joyful darkness far beyond our seeing,
closer yet than breathing, everlasting home:
hail and hosanna, great, living God.
