Who has listened
Has truly heard
With open minds and tender hearts,
Very few, very few indeed;
Lies are worshiped everywhere
Greedy liars prosper and are exulted
Politicians, business people, entertainers and actors…
Bitter for sweet, sweet for bitter
Darkness and light both the same.
Words of truth clothed the earth from the beginning
Bathed the Earth in Light before the sun and moon,
Every nation, every tribe, all creation as a witness
In personal accountability,
The eternal power and divine nature resonates, and resounds,
As Heavenly trumpets sounded loudly
Countless holy angels in joyful singing
Celebrate Messiah who walked the Earth.
Human nature proudly demands work,
To earn money, to lift up a personal trophy,
Crowns human effort as the highest ideal,
Daily striving for bread and what does not satisfy!
Everyone who truly listens
Who listens to the Heavenly Father of all
And hears Him within
Is drawn to the only worthy Shepherd,
Lord of Life who can lead us
Who brings us safely home, His home,
Eternal shelter, eternal warmth
Eternal bread and drink
And the final rest our hearts crave, our souls seek.
Songs of beauty flow through the atmosphere as tender breezes
Joyful songs of freedom’s Spirit wind
Even freedom for every little bird caught in an impossible snare;
Every child born who longs after the deepest mysteries of life, of existence
Who searches through the thick veil of human reason, intensely in every direction
Will finally discover the old, heavy veil in the ancient Jerusalem temple torn in two,
From top to bottom,
Holy of Holies an open door,
A majestic gate to a narrow road of God’s love
Revealed fully in the One who faithfully showed His loves for us all.
