You are the Tree of Life, We are the leaves. You drop us to the earth, We float down on Your breeze. Your rooted Above and Below. And though We feel stranded at times, You all around surround Us. We are embraced in Your being. Flesh decays into dirt, but through You and scent of water We are rebirthed. Refreshed, cleansed new. Once We recall who We are We All return to You. Because You are, I am! Thank You! Amen! On Your feet I stand, I work with Your hands on Your command! Because You are, I am! The gift of love; its existence alone in itself gives meaning of Life in its absolute and complete persistence. Your perfectness oh Lord is beyond all distance.
