Created for Union with God

Our loving God created us
as needy creatures in order to
bind us to Himself,
the Source of all.
He has destined us to
eternally share all the riches of His own being.
Set to a familiar tune.

Printed Music

Unbounded, holy Breath,
You flood all time and space,
While we, so here and now,
Are dust and deep disgrace.

Father, Source of all,
All that we pursue,
See us, frail and incomplete.
Our wholeness, Lord, is You.

All-knowing, mighty God,
Pure goodness ever near,
We struggle, small and lost,
All selfishness and fear.

What poverty within!
What unimagined wealth!
You bless us with this need
To bless us with Yourself.

For me, heaven is not a mansion,
a harp, or
angels’ wings.
It is not meeting old friends or
an endless family reunion.
That is not what my heart longs for.

My heart longs for You,
my Father,
my Creator.
My heart longs for my Savior,
my Brother,
my Wisdom and Holiness,
My heart longs for the Second Adam of all I will be.
My heart longs for the Breath of God,
the Wind of God,
the Life of God
blowing fully, freely, and unceasingly through all I am.

I long for
a heart,
a mind,
a world
permeated completely and forever
with God alone.

Come, Lord Jesus!
I long, and
I wait.
