Movements of Henri

Being of the humble
Of vulnerability
Moving from opaqueness
To transparency

A mask of deception
Leads us to despair
Moving from illusion
To Your truth through prayer

Hearts of the broken
A greater hope, employ
Moving from our sorrow
To eternal joy

Human of emotion
Chose our attitude
Moving from resentment
To One of gratitude

Souls of belonging
Past lies of delusion
Moving from exclusion
To one of inclusion

Mortal bones and body
Draw the Spirits breath
Moving from denying
to befriending death

Sinners of worried
Our true treasure find
Moving from our fear
To love of the divine

(based upon words by Henri Nouwen)
