Longing towards heaven in wondrous beseech
are the prayers of our hearts- they longingly reach.
Held in the palm of God’s sky in deep sweep.
Lifted like archers in tall clouds that leap.
In the midst of it all, we reach not in vain,
for in His beloveds, in His Spirit, God reigns.
Running with Wind, we sing out Holy praise
There, in becoming with The Joy of all days.
Sending, a Kingdom by reach that reigns Love.
cast for all to gather, by His will from above.
