The Moon is Always Full

 

The moon is always full

Our human eyes

See only its phases

 

Love is always here

Our human heart

Sees only its shadow

 

Joy is always present

Our human mind

Reasons it away

 

God is always near

Our human spirit

Knows this without words

 

O Moon, display your full beauty

to my inner eye

O Love, come into the light that casts

no shadow

O joy, overflow my cup of reason

with your wine

O God, fill me, fill me, fill me

with Your knowing

 

That my heart may rejoice in You

My eyes may be filled with You

My reason overcome by You

My spirit abound in You

 

Ameen!
