Could it be that God is here, now?
Could it be that God would share this sojourn with us?
Could it be that He would descend to our level,
To share our place, our human disgrace?
Could it be that He would descend into our valleys
Very Light of very Light, now stooping to our darkness
To inhere our very shadow with His holy shine?
Could it be that God not only has a Name, but that He
Knows our very name, holding it in promise on a white stone –
Our secret name, of destiny, blessing from shame?
Could it be that God not only knows what we are going through,
But that He has also shared it with us, and carries us even now,
To holy morn, though all we may see is gathering gloom?
Could it be that Light has come, through a blessed Son,
That the path we journey now, through darkness, is the chosen,
Holy path to destined light – high beauty on the way?
