This is Glory

This is the shadow but the light is unseen
Realer than this reality ever has been
This world foreshadows all that is real
All of your knowledge and all you can feel

Lost in a fantasy blinded and bleak
Reckoning substance beyond what we seek
Give me the vision, You take the dream
For nothing in this world’s as sure as it seems

This is glory, this is glory
Hallelujah, Glorious weight
For this is no burden
That is for certain
Wait for your eyes to dilate
You will see both the narrow and straight.

Now the shadows persist And the shadows obscure
Darkle, dull they resist the pilgrim’s sure cure
So come to the lightbearer To the luminous  light
So come near, wayfarer -razzle-dazzle your sight

This is glory, this is glory
Hallelujah, Glorious weight
For this is no burden
That is for certain
Wait for your eyes to dilate
You who seek both the narrow and straight.
