Poetry Corner: We Know Not (Tune: Cathedrale Engloutie)

We know not the outcome of our lives while living them
An act or a choice
Something lost or won
A word of prayer
Things done and left undone

We who live in the wilderness of time and place
Responding to call
Inclining our hearts
Receiving light
And hope that You impart

In the deep unworded presence of our gracious God
Confounding our pride
Reframing the sight
And certainty
Of what was good and right

For your life in us is beauty made for Beauty's sake
Your highest virtue
Sculpted from our days
We are your art
Of life when love displays

- Philip Carr-Jones
