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.”
