Loving Spirit

Loving Spirit, loving Spirit, you have chosen me to be;
you have drawn me to your wonder, you have set your sign on me.

Like a mother you enfold me, hold my life within your own.
Feed me with your very body, form me of your flesh and bone.

Like a father you protect me, teach me the discerning eye.
Hoist me up upon your shoulder, let me see the world on high.

Friend and lover in your closeness I am known and held and blest:
in your promise is my comfort, in your presence I may rest.

Loving Spirit, loving Spirit, you have chosen me to be;
you have drawn me to your wonder, you have set your sign on me.

[We sang this in church yesterday, but they didn't give an author/composer in the program, and I couldn't find anything on the web. Shout out if you do know, okay?]
