“Cities full of idols,
In the temples, in the marketplaces”,
Yet, new red wine flows freely
As morning joy from the Shepherd’s hand,
Gladness rises within
Like the sun over the Eastern Ridge
Wonderful light to see,
Brilliant light to see warmth again.
The greatest blessing of all
To be alive in the embrace of the Living God
Our Creator of all things
Spirit Words of kindness
Eternal Words of compassion
The only One who cares for us
With arms of love that reach through the Universe.
Holy Spirit Words enter the soul
Messiah’s Light is sown in the heart
Heaven’s Light gives birth in the human spirit;
This Light only grows brighter within
Even eyes glow as lamps with lasting truth
Transparent goodness from Heaven wraps all about.
I stand in strongest love with you and for you
We walk in bold confidence hand in hand
Peace within and shalom without
What truly counts fully alive,
What really matters fully realized
Our only longing and desire overflows the hope given,
Our only lasting treasure.
