“You laughed the stars into the sky”

Only now, this minute, do I realize

This, and understand joyful truth:

You are God who loves, cherishes, knows me

Your misfit, orphaned child of scarred mystery

You are the Happy God*, my Heavenly Father

Hurray!  Hurrah!

And even if I see no stars, clouds concealing

I will listen for, hear, the twinkling of Your laughter

The merriment You feel when You look upon me

With tender care, covenant grace and peace.
