lyrics

Blinding Dawn

“The morning! The morning!” I cried,
“I am caught in the morning and I am a ghost.”
C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce

Twelve open gates,
Twelve jewels,
Twelve fruits of the tree of life,
Twelve foundations.

Outside,
The howling dark,
One gate, one death,
One way down.

Here I am,
With my one thing,
My own one way,
My sweet idolatries.

Dawn,
Hurts eyes,
Blind from seeing,
Seeing blind.

The voice that cries,
“Maranatha, “ “Come,”
“Come,” “Maranatha,”
Makes hearing deaf.

Here in the dark,
I shut those gates,
Tight,
Lock them up.

Turn off the switch,
Not to see,
With eyes,
Blinded by light.

Turn down the volume
Not to hear
With ears
Deaf from sound.

Still

There is a radiance here
That makes the blind to see.
A holy holy holy
That makes the deaf to hear.

Maranatha,
A deep down sound in things rumbles,
Come,
Beloved come.

Here in this dark place,
Locked,
Deaf,
Blind,
The Spirit calls.

O God
grant me
mercy
to go.

Poem by Harry O. Maier
