1 The dance of the stars in burning glory
weaves through the years in the deepest heaven;
meeting, dividing, circling and parting,
each with the light that the Lord has given.

2 The steps of the angels in their patterns
tread through the leagues of the pathless skies;
praising, adoring, listening, obeying,
swifter than light, as the stars they rise.

3 The joy of creation in the Godhead
rings with the love of the Three-in-One;
saving, redeeming, making, renewing,
wisdom and light are in God alone.

4 The songs of the saints in a million churches
spring into glory from time and space;
born to a kingdom everlasting,
daughters of light and the sons of grace.
