High and heavenly One,
raised from the ground,
then raised to heaven,
we praise You.
For far beyond our understanding,
You came to dwell amongst humanity,
that the presence of God would be met
in the hands and voices of Your living Presence.
In the parting of the clouds
that took You from our midst
space was created
in which to prepare human hearts
to tell and share the story of Love.
Too heavenly minded that sometimes we are of no earthly use,
for in seeking to emulate the precious wall of the Eternal Kingdom,
we forget compassion and care.
Eyes on the clouds
we stumble with careless words and actions,
or neglect the world in which we live.
As forgiveness revitalise our live,
make us passionate for the whole of creation,
that our lives may speak of the fullness of God.
