My Journey to God

Assent

“O come, let us adore Him!”
echoes in my soul
an invitation
from long ago

so trusted that I
stop
what I am doing
and glance
and gaze
and get into the line
extending to the sky
and thence to the center
of unbroken praise

this is my response
each step
each breath
each yes

tending to our suffering
yet with an ear
attuned
to the distant song of joy
echoing within

“O come, let us adore Him!”

take what is given
leave all the rest
