The Morning Star

People dismiss the heavenly

That’s beyond our ken

The human world is what we know

The how and where and when

We cannot trust what we don’t know

What we cannot see or touch

God is a word I do not know

So can’t amount to much


But Jesus is the word of God

A language I can hear

A human being just like us

A presence very near

God speaks to us in human form

Becoming one of us

A language we can listen to

A presence we can trust


But a moment of divinity

He shares with disciples three

And Peter is the witness

Of the mountain’s mystery

I am not telling lies he says

I saw it for myself

I share with you the truth of it

Faith is the great wealth
