Far below the crashing waves
Of what things seem to be,
Are powerful currents that will change
The course of history.


Far above the petty schemes
Down on this squalid earth,
Is a realm where all can see
Which acts have lasting worth.


So much more is happening
Than we can ever grasp;
How much broader will our vision be
When we near our final gasp?


What lessons will the Teacher grant
Before our weak hearts fail?
What glimpses can we share with Man
Of what’s beyond the veil?


What part of heaven can we bring
To life in our own homes?
What connects us to our kin
Besides our chromosomes?


Who will we turn to as our guide
Through turbulence and doubt?
In which good soul can we confide
And know they won’t walk out?


How can we be a solid friend
To those who need our care?
Be faithful with the gifts He sends
And keep them in your prayers.
