The heavens burst in angelic song
My heart begins to sing, "I'm almost there!"
I meet sisters in Christ, marching on...
My soul begins to sing, "We're almost there!"
Brothers come with words and swords, both strong
My head begins to say, "Let us Hear!"
But on many days, we cannot be proud
Of what we seek and say, quietly and loud
Then Fernando Ortega's voice helps me on
Drowning my cluttering thoughts, stuttering song
We come so close and turn from our creed
Not in word and deed, but being jelly-kneed
Giving in to those who pay us crumbs
Having to cheer them on, raising our thumbs ...
No easy answers when we are in and of this world
Riding in the dark; Jesus, are we almost there?
