Forever Now

Forever Now

O this depth,
This tranquil vast,
That issues forth
From a hoary past.
A oneness-wisdom
Merged in Him,
Timeless and serene.

A thousand millennia culminate
In this single moment:
  God’s Now,
  Forever Now.

Eternity now
Sings through me.
I welcome it
With tearing gratitude.

This Your presence
Both ancient and urgent:

O my Lord,
You are my single moment:
  Your Now.
   Forever Now.
