I have come

– a blazing light of joy,

dancing in the mountains

as the darkness

crumbles around me.

I have come in roaring wind

and bubbling streams,

sweeping the earth

with great tides,

filling all

with the sacred fragrance

of life.

I am the promise

of peace

and of hope.

Breath of the Risen One,

Triumph of Love.

I hear your cries,

I hold your tears,

I am in

the wordless pleas

of your heart.

I have come to be born

in the thirsty ground

of your soul.

Pain and despair –

you will be banished,

days of anguish –

you are numbered.

I have come,

come to free you,

for there are no chains

that I cannot break,

no wounds

that I will not heal,

and no night I cannot penetrate.

Take courage and be comforted,

I will draw you closer,

I will absorb you and lift you up,

carry and caress you

and sing my song through you.

I have come –

and there is no joy

that will not be poured upon you.
