Gloria In Excelsis

Faithfulness

through the wilderness

Climbing a mountain

of passion burning

from just a single spark

The pure fragrance

of sacred incense

Your presence

in the darkness

That deepest dark

of the longest night

Yet the dreams

and visions flowing

Revelations

of wrong and right

The Truth outstanding

with wisdom

in the experience

of understanding

The laying down of arms

and making tracks

Strength and resilience

by the Spirit’s persistence

spoken into the silence

through broken cracks

Gloria In Excelsis

The earth delving

The sky scraping

Seeking … weeping

for your brokenness

Beyond all that has past

a blaze of glory towering

The Great Spirit searching

The angels singing

Dragon slaying

Will this be the last ?

upon the boundaries riding

Riding with the King

Liberty guiding

In the shadow of your wing

restoring

My daily bread

sustaining

A milk and honey tomorrow

envisaging

Passing over

that river crossing

of yesterday

Drained

Was I drowning

in those waters of strife ?

Yet, the pathway

always beckoning

always calling

Choose Life !

A decision willing

Nothing lasts

Nothing truly lost

Going with the flow

Gone at great cost
