The breath of Spirit
Divine inspiration reveals what we all are as children of God – spiritual, pure, strong, joyful, united – and empowers us to actively live those qualities, as this poem conveys.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
– John 1:1
The breath of Spirit voiced God’s Word:
The cosmos thus God-given;
And Love saw “it was very good”* –
All things in earth and heaven.
Hence man was formed by Spirit pure –
The breath of inspiration;
One cannot ask for any more,
This is our sure foundation.
Embraced in Love, in Truth, in Life –
In God we have our being;
Each breath of prayer unites us all:
In Spirit is true seeing.
Oh, let us live as Spirit guides,
To follow all Thy ways,
For in Thy purity we live,
Oh, sing with joy and praise!
