The depth of love

Barely touched

Waters of a pool so refreshing

Lightly touched

As a skipping stone bounces away

Hardly touched,

Maybe with a finger

Or a toe dipped in gently.

Deep calls to deep

The depth of commitment of our Savior

And His Cross,

His sacrifice of love calls out to our hearts

To take one step closer

Then another

And always more,

To be immersed in the Spirit of His Peace

Then to rise up from baptism

As a new creation in His eyes

To hold the vision of the Universe and beyond,

Gift of Life that soars with angels

And comes to eternal rest

In His loving Presence, before His glorious Throne.
