Your days and nights in the wilderness,
Even as you rose from the water.
Now you walk unshod on burning sands
On a hard ground strewn with edged stones.
Bereft of food, weakened by thirst,
You gaze to heaven only to be tempted -
Bread from stones, walled temples,
All the kingdoms of the world.
But you are filled with the Holy Spirit.
You fill me with hope eternal.
Soon you gaze down towards the ground.
You are suffering because you cried:
Take me but let the others go.
Behold, you are the Lamb of God
Who takes away sins of the world.
Then you died and now you live.
Behold the only Son of God
Whom the Father does not forsake.
You live in the heart of sinners.
You fill me with life eternal.
Now you look down on us from on high -
A sight that breaks your loving heart.
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
The Walled Kingdom of the East,
The prouder Citadels of the West,
Even the Newest of the Worlds,
Stand to dissolve in a cloud of Fire.
Prince of Peace, save us from ourselves:
Fill us with Love for our enemies.
