Next



Next


Looking, watching breathlessly


For night to green the day,


When Next fans out before me


And clearly shows my way.


When the promise of the song I sing


Becomes the way I live,


When the lessons I am learning now


Become the gifts I give.


When my longing turns to Beauty,


When unknowing quits my days,


When misgiving turns to confidence


And transfigures into praise.


When I call out for an answer


And know exactly what to do,


When chaos turns to order


And I rest my heart in You.


When the Holy Next in waiting


Reveals Itself to me


And fills me with a fierce resolve


That calls me to be Me.


"Take heart, my Dear," the Sacred sings,


In a voice like liquid sun,


“Let your lion heart take up My chant


Your Next has now begun.”
