Worthy is the Lamb

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you, because by your holy cross,
you have redeemed the world.

God of unconditional love,
of freedom beyond-all-measure...

how do we fathom
our own hearts
a depth of self-giving
so much more
than our experience?

How do we enter
your boundless
for we measure not

Help us, O God...
Help us
to exchange the weight
of judgment
for the freedom
of forgiveness.

To clothe
our brothers and sisters
with the garment
of compassion.
To let mercy
make a home
in our hearts,
and truth
the door through which
we pass...
And there
so enter upon
the way of Jesus
who is life
beyond-all-measure. Amen
