7 Let the Bride prepare herself mp3 Instrumental version
  'Fire from the North' 3


Lord save us
from falling for the Platonic ideal
of assuming a purely spiritual afterlife,
lest we become
too individualised
in our outlook
as a result.


Like a brilliant musician
who sees no need
to relate to other players,
and thereby robs the symphony
of their love and prayer,
how sad
when people hear distressing news,
and find no need
to turn it into prayer
and compassionate concern.









You are supremely there
for those who have nothing
and no one in this world.

For in Your Kingdom
the formerly unimportant
will occupy centre stage,


while some of the seemingly more magnificent
will be shown to be no more than wolves
in sheep’s clothing.

So help us to prepare without pride or possessiveness
for this life of eternity,
leaving behind all that would slur or slurry,
so that even in our secret hearts
we prefigure the age that is to come;

for it is only with our hearts thus set
that we can fully appreciate the riches of life
as You have desired and designed it,
on the sacred space that is Earth.

You spoke of the time
when You will return to Earth
in great power and glory
in just the same way by which You left it,
to rule in power
and to make all things new.

Therefore in faith we look forward
not so much to escaping from this world,
than to playing our part in its glorious transformation,
grateful for our allotted station,
not missing our reward through failing to heed Your commands,
or envying others who are bound for more senior reward,
but devoting our utmost to Your highest.



Listen to me, all you in distant lands! Pay attention, you who are far away!


The LORD called me before my birth;
from within the womb he called me by name.

He has hidden me in the shadow of His hand.
I am like a sharp arrow in His quiver.
