my high and shining place

you are my high and shining place
you are my deep and tender refuge
you are the sky in which I rise
and the night that cradles me

you are the far and distant voice
that calls my soul to singing fly
straight as the swan whose only thought
to reach your heart and deep embrace
you are the face of soulsí delight
you are the earth that nourishes
you are my breathing and my heart
this life this life is but your grace


your eyes sustain me with their glance
your breathing is my very life
you are the dark and fragrant ground
the soil in which my soul finds life
