Beloved F A T H E R Another step toward you begins, The soul is wrestling with its human being, Oh, if only this one were successful, We'd rise and enter into YOUR light-full being. Toward unity with YOU, and also with all being, Into the garden of YOUR divine creation. When we dare to take the loving step toward YOU, You will take us upon eagle's wings - beyond all barriers and all things. Heavy bodies YOU render light, Deepest of waters, made shallow by Your might. And when forces of nature are unleashed, When we are surrounded by darkness or beast, YOU extend to us YOUR hand. Shattered is the darkest wall, The shroud that keeps out light must fall, Dissolved by YOUR light, no longer is a threat at all. We glance into the secret life Of nature beings, surrounding us. In earth, water, air and fire, Their love is calling to us: Come into our cheerful midst, Hear the sound of our violins rejoicing, And our voices' lovely sound, To our COSMIC CREATOR our thanks we are voicing. The angel choir joins in jubilation, Love vibrates in all being. The spirits praise YOUR holy name, And creation whispers its amen.
