The Eighth Day

outpoured song outpoured Spirit
outpoured water outpoured wine
outpoured blood outpoured breath
outpoured sweet sad humankind
in the pouring is the finding
outpoured song outpoured wine

broken prayer broken promise
broken lyrics broken life
broken bread broken body
broken God in all our sight
in the breaking is the sharing
broken bread broken life

raging storm ruined shame
doubtful humans dawning hope
kindling knowledge knowing kin
perfect one perfecting all
in the rising sin is routed
reversing fall sounding call

Holy Cross Day, September 14, 2007
