Advent 2: Sift

advent2

We are your stars and sand,
Light and dust,
Vapor and fire,
Washed easily away, twinkling out of view,
Built and beloved by You.

Your covenant is strong
And your eye sees beyond
Thousands of years, failings and tears of supernova size,
To see enemy-conquerors, world-blessers,
Made glorious
By a given Son, a blessed Babe,
That You did not withhold.

Come, Love, and see beyond the actual to the true,
Sift sand and stars through the fingers that made them,
Sacrifice the Sun and scatter your fire
To the edge of the nations and beyond.

(inspired by lesson 2: Genesis 22:15-18)
