We want to know you, Jesus.

We want to cherish and hold
Adore and revere
Esteem and glorify you.

Keep you in our hearts
Glimpse you in our lives
Trace you on our paths,
Comforting the homeless
Grieving with the mourners
Forgiving our sins
Healing our wounds
Raising our dying

We are afraid, awed, overwhelmed at your glory.
We are touched, moved, transformed by your love.
We are cleansed, renewed, refreshed by your forgiveness.

We thank you
We praise you
We love you.

You… the transfigured One.

You… the resurrected One.

You… the One…

“This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him.”

Amen.
