Where, we ask, is God today?

A hymn by Kim Fabricius

(Tune: Emma)

Where, we ask, is God today –
    in the gaps that science leaves,
    gaps that close as knowledge grows?
Such a God is on reprieve.

Where, we ask, is God today –
    in the private place of prayer,
    where we find security?
Such a God’s a teddy bear.

Where, we ask, is God today –
    in the church, behind its walls,
    for a cause in quarantine?
Such a God is far too small.

Where, we ask, is God today –
    in jihad or cruel crusade,
    in the council room of war?
Such a God’s the devil’s aide.

Where, we ask, is God today –
    in the questions that we ask,
    in the puzzles and the pain?
God is in the toils and tasks!

Where, we ask, is God today –
    are we where his Christ would be,
    with the outcast and ignored?
Such is God’s humanity!
