Elusive Illusive Hopings

Consumed by the horizon
Pulled farther out to sea
The siren call of something more
We seek what now is yet to be
Ever elusive the answer lies
It seems beyond our grasp
Yet the gift of life in fullness
Comes to those who simply ask
That illusive distant boundary
That draws so many to pursuit
Is not the home of life and love
For God’s home is made in you
The promise of the Risen One
Of Jesus Christ our King
Is hope placed in our open hands
And peace set deep within
Be zealous for the present
And the life that’s ours today
For pursuing joy that’s days ahead
Keeps us drifting on the waves
