This Sea We See

We stand upon a shore
To over-look a sea
Twixt what has gone before
And what is yet to be

The imminence of New
Is cradled in the Old
And everything we do
Will soon fall to its hold

The gentle morn awakes
Washing across earth’s beach
But soon the hour will take
It far beyond our reach

Lord, touch us as we stand
And overlook its sea
These footprints in God's hand
Lead to eternity

...there are no shorelines where
The Epic Evermore
Lies just beyond our stare
After Time's brief Before
