When I sing your name
and know your
presence to be
unfailing within me,
When I cast away
the doubt that a screeching world
nurtures within minds, young and old,
When I cry tears of joy
as the boundless
grace of your love,
brought alive by the remembrance of your name
in song
in word
and in thought,
empowers me to know this path
as that of truth,
this path you
have laid out for me,
And when I kneel
before your light
within the temple of wisdom,
at the altar of my own mind,
the last shreds of fear
are blown away on winds
of faith,
All that I am,
I know to be you.
