They run into His embrace
As children in this world
Once lost, now found in God’s love.
Those emotionally torn, intellectually deadened,
Those thought near, always distant
Those religiously “strange”, thought deluded,
Begin to make a little sense;
The fruit of lives- stability, order
And a type of peace seen,
Seemingly a clean love for others,
All that had been a mystery set aside,
Somehow understood, not really forgotten.
Now, through glaring eyes of unfulfilled need,
Something new can be seen
Simple, but attractive
Embarrassing to pride, but an honest step has to be taken,
Things that anchored America begin to lose all grip.
So, one step is taken, then another
Eyes begin to see what ears began to hear
Present reality ecllipsed by a greater reality
A presence, a brightness beyond the sun
A face of confidence, a face of spiritual peace.
Once a myth, historical fable, a weakness
Now the power of all mystery, eternal reality revealed
Wisdom in God alone, in Messiah alone.
This one bows with all of his being
And like a calf leaps from a stall
He runs with all of his strength
Into the only lasting embrace.
