Worship

Worship

I come
Hopeful and fearful…
Joyful and tearful…
Alone and united…
Bewildered by Absence…
Surprised by Presence…
Confused by Unknowing…
Illumined by Light…
unbeing called into Being…
unreality pulsating with Reality…
falseness exposed by Truth…
failure embraced by Forgiveness…
In sound and in silence…
In music and in speech…
In dance and in stillness…
In Sight…
Sound…
Smell…
Taste…
Touch…
Symbols abound…
Meanings expand…
With head and heart,
With hand and eye,
With nose and mouth
With ear and sigh…
With sighs and groans too deep for words…
With silent speech and wordless yearning…
Beyond understanding the Word made flesh…
The Myth speaks beyond reason…
I am enabled
To know the Unknowable…
To see the Invisible…
To access the Inaccessible…
I, the unholy, receive
The All-Holy, the Most Pure
And am drawn into Holiness, into Purity…
Hopeless, given Hope…
Thrice failing, receive Forgiveness…
Burdened, guilt taken and born by the Guiltless One…
Shamed, washed spotless by the Perfect One poured out…
Empty, filled to overflowing by the Living One…
Weak, empowered by the One who willingly set side His power…
Frail, made strong by the One who took and bore my frailty…
Broken, made whole by the One who was broken for me…
I go
Transformed.
