One with you

Lord, we are forever 
One with you.

We come from you; remain in you;
Return to you. 

Your Spirit never leaves us,
Nor forsakes us –

Lord, we are forever
One with you.

******

Born from the oblivion 
Of Eden,

And exiled to this world
To seek your way    

Through all the trials and sorrows
Living brings us –

Lord, we are forever
One with you.

******

In time, we face 
Gethsemane’s deep anguish,

And walk the lonely shadows   
Of death’s vale,

Till exile ends, 
And we come home to Eden –

Where, Lord, we are forever 
One with you.

Where we can meet you safely
Every day.
