THE LORD APPROACHES
As the Lord of Heaven and Earth approaches
The land radiates, pulses with glory
Anything and everything unclean is consumed,
Holy fire leaves only holiness
And honor to the Holy One, the Redeemer.
The newest temple in Jerusalem waits His presence
Each human earth vessel made for that purpose as well,
Each man, each woman destined to be called
To be bathed in light, ears filled with new songs
Blind eyes opened at last.
From the distant stars
To the wonders of earth’s created sun
Divine reflections of eternity, of infinity blaze
Even the desire, a flame born within every true seeker
Who sincerely asks and graciously seeks, and finds;
Common needs driven to embrace humility
Full realization of human emptiness
The destructive, lonely forces of self inborn,
Human nature at best stands stubbornly only to fall.
The Temple that is His Body,
And the destined, soon to be rebuilt temple in Jerusalem
Holy temple, sanctified temple
Bought and cleansed forever by the blood of the Lamb;
Though to be defiled once again,
Bought and cleansed by the blood of the Lamb.
In the beginning, the One through whom all things were made, even Israel
In the end, rightful owner, just possessor and sovereign King in Jerusalem
Uncompromising Lord of Truth on Mount Zion,
Glorious One before time began
Fills His new earth with new Heavenly Light
