Baptism

Baptism May 17, 2017

As his right arm supports me,

I hold his left arm with both hands.

Gently he lowers me

Back, down, beneath the surface.

 

In the water, undeceived,

From the angels’ bonds relieved,

I by mercy now reprieved

From the cell where first Eve fell.

All of Heaven in me dwells.

I know the Wisdom of my self

And the glory of the Love

Whose name I claim forevermore.

 

As I rise from the water

I know that I love him.

We sit and talk for days,

But I do not tell him yet.

When he returns to Kefer-Nahum,

My brother and I return to Bethany.
