Victory

 

No eye can bear
Your dazzling light,

No flesh survive 
Your cleansing flame;

No mind can grasp
Your secret thoughts;

No heart presume
To speak your name;

No soul can know
Your mystery,

Yet we can share
Your victory.

When I wake up

 

When I wake up
I turn afresh 
To Christ, who dwells
Within my flesh. 

Next, I begin  
To seek and find
The Christ, who dwells 
Within my mind.

Then I get up, 
To play my part
For Christ, who dwells
Within my heart.

And, all day long,
I’ll make my goal
The Christ, who dwells
Within each soul.

Forgive our sins,
And set us free –
