Believe (Easter Refrain)
I believe in the light everlasting…in the universe unbounded and ever-changing. I believe in the glory of music and magic, the power of dreams and imagination, the necessity of tears and heartache, and the redemption of passion and compassion.
I believe in the truth of the moment and the fluidity of the past and the certainty of the sprawling future. I believe moments are precious…minutes are eternal…days are short…years are quicksilver…I believe that time is the healer, the destroyer, the cradle of human existence.
I believe in love when my heart seems filled beyond capacity…I believe in love when my heart seems empty beyond despair. I believe in love…and in hate. I believe in joy…and in anger. I believe in justice…and in forgiveness.
I believe in faith…and wondering. I believe in the existence of foolish war…and the certainly of reborn peace. I believe in the divinity of mortality and the humanity of the divine.
I believe that I am God…and you are God…and we are God…and God is all of us living, all of us who have died, all of us who are yet to be born. I believe that God, however simply or complexly you conceive of that universal balance, is.
I believe that we are fleeting in the ken of the universe. I believe that we are eternal in the tapestry of the universe.
I believe…in the light everlasting.
I believe…in love and being.
