To the One whom Heaven has hidden... What glorious vision,
He for whom Time obeys and space diminish!
Sight remains obscured and the distance hidden,
This the Royal Road He hath given!
Speak of the one whom You have held from me, O Gracious One...
Speak of her as radiance that reflects the Light of Your Son!
Love, O Love, won't thou speak of the Other and in us indwell
Love's Spirit, and in all the tyrant temporal tempests quell.
O Love come now to us and dwell!
Make of us a shelter to weather the storm,
Out of the dust and air to form
Us in your likeness and to us transform,
That which is Love Outpoured.
Come to us, O Love in hiding...
Give us the grace to trust Your timing.
