imagine how god can sing,
how his voice delights the universe
with a range that blends eternally
into chords of his love.
imagine how god can dance,
moving gracefully up to our hearts
to invite us to be intimate
and share in his joy.
then imagine how god must feel
if we move back away from him
to design our own destinies,
shaping lives of desiring and fear.
then imagine god’s happiness
when a wanderer cries out to him
for the peace that only he can give;
for the strength he grants to truly live;
and when the choice is made to look to him
and finally draw near.
