Faith of metaphor and mystery

Lyrics by Bronwyn Angela White. Tune: Regent Square

Faith of metaphor and mystery
Christ of paradox and pun
Sure foundation, revelation,
Many facets of the One

Sacred found in the familiar:
phase of moon, and blazing sun.

God of living, dying, rising
Goddess: maiden, mother, crone
Word of sages, rock of ages
Love transforming hearts of stone

Meaning made in the familiar:
spirit, body, breath and bone.

Passover and visitation
Parable and playful jest
Seeking, finding; losing, binding
Exodus and hero’s quest

Sacrament of the familiar:
open door and welcome guest.

Life in all its many stages
Sense and senses, heart and head
Meditation, celebration
Hope new-risen from the dead

Meaning found in the familiar:
making peace and breaking bread.
