An open door before us
No one can shut it
The Lord of Life
Has opened His heart,
To you, and to me
To everyone who will come,
But, few will enter;
His heart is very large
Room for the Universe and beyond
All the heavens
The earth and all that is on it
Birds of the air and fish of the sea
Things seen and unseen
Angelic host who carry holiness as a crown of love,
All children who draw breath,
My own grandchildren as a crown for my gray head.
The earth may shake
Trial upon trial to test
To refine and purge the remnant
World as a place of separation
Of choices and strength and victories.
The Champion of our faith
Captain of our path these few running days;
Clothed in flesh and blood
Shaped as Adam, as Eve our ancestors.
We walk the same earth clothed the new hope
Divine crown of the holy eternal knowledge,
Hand held tightly
Led through the very door to Heaven.
