Christ’s greater life is our life.

Our strength

Here see your hands,

Here wiggle your feet.

Here lies your heart,

Feel its every beat.

This is our life,

Appearing to be

All that we’ll know,

All there is to “me.”

But we are more

Than nature defines,

A living soul

With a conscious mind.

Not here, not there,

But something apart.

“Lo, I’m with you,”

Speaking in our heart.

Giving comfort,

Pushing back the night.

Ever awake,

Lifting us to light.

A greater “me”

Than just hands and feet.

Christ’s stronger heart,

An eternal beat.
