A seeking, a dawning to see
A bridge, a light from you to me

A journey, not alone
A grasped hand guiding home

To the mystery, the prize,
A wise smile in your eyes

This pain, this glory
This longing to be

The reward of my labor
To be known, know and see

The envelopment of love
And fear notwithstanding

With vision of heart
I am understanding!
