I find it very odd that we can't see you, God.
What does it mean that you can't be seen?
Where do you go when you go away,
when I can't find you night or day?
I want to hug you and hold your hand;
I want you to show me the Promised Land.
Take me where I've never been. Come on, Father, let me in.
I want to see hinds feet on high places, stags running fleet races
mountain crags and meadows lush, roaring waters and twilight's hush.
Here I am child, open your eyes. See me in a sunset's purple skies,
the smile on a baby's face, the galaxies swirling out in space.
See me in trees after a shower, flowers blooming in a hidden bower.
Displayed in beauty everywhere, I am in the hearts of all who care.
Open your mind; see with your heart that we are not ever really apart.
I live in you. You live in me. We're together forever, eternally.
You are my child, created to love, to be sent to creation, below and above.
Love is the key for you to see, that I am in everything, for all came from me.
Open your eyes, child, drink it all in, the unseen is God, who will never end.
In atoms and protons, in all DNA, in all my creation, at work or play.
In you, and through you and as you,
I'm helping and guiding and leading you through
the tight spots and dim places of your life
through sin and trouble and gloom and strife.
I made it, I sent it, and I'll bring you through,
it all depends on me, not on what you do.
So, sit back child, relax and smile, for this life lasts such a little while.
At the end of your personal story, you'll come with me to walk in glory,
where, with all creation throughout time and space,
you will behold your God, face to face.
