Arrayed with jasmine – scented dew.
From here to beyond, a step away -
His mansions just outside our view.
A step between our known and there,
A breath away, and tears that swell,
As shadows mock - as shadows do,
We know He's true, and all is well.
That portal to eternal realms
Carved so carefully by His hands
Just a doorway, just a step -
From shadows to the sunny lands.
