Is this the heart that holds to love and God's care
What be this knowing that sees beyond illusion's veil
Is this the faith that rises above all travail
What be this joy and soaring quest
Is this the blessing of Creation's behest
This moment, this hour, this day be it now TRUTH proclaimed
By the loving grace of BEING, by GOD'S WORD named.
