Christ, the eternity-bearer,
coming before time, and after;
entering the space within us,
light-imbuing creation all around us.
Let us feel your warmth,
free from this cold vacuum;
wrap us in your arms,
hastening to our rescue.
I suffer and I die,
this far from paradise;
You come and share my pain,
offering eternal life once again.
Though our eyes cannot see beyond the grave,
our hearts have perfect vision;
the mind is wandering, and depraved,
yet, with Christ is life’s perfection.
