"A Love Unfettered"
October 10, 2005

I close my eyes-
Singing "Open my eyes, Lord-"
And I see more clearly
Than ever before.

I open my ears
And hear not the instruments.
There is only the sound
Of voices in praise.

Two-hundred strong,
The choir exalts the Lord.
Their voices rising-
Rising beyond the rafters,
Beyond the universal plane.

A joy-
A calm-
A Spirit
Comes over me,
And I know
It's not for naught
That I sing.
His Presence is manifest.

The voices are one:
One body,
One love,
One family.
The voices are for one:
One Object,
One Focus,
One Father.

There is but that moment-
That place-
That sound-
Undying and imprinting
Its memory upon my heart.
The desire to see-
The desire to hear-
The desire to feel-
All that makes our God,
Our God.

This time-
This place-
This pinnacle of voices
A love unfettered.

"I will praise the name of God with a song,
And will magnify Him with thanksgiving."
--Psalm 69:30 (KJV)
