    We saw his light break through the cloud of glory
    Whilst we were rooted still in time and place
    As earth became a part of Heaven’s story
    And heaven opened to his human face.
    We saw him go and yet we were not parted
    He took us with him to the heart of things
    The heart that broke for all the broken-hearted
    Is whole and Heaven-centred now, and sings,
    Sings in the strength that rises out of weakness,
    Sings through the clouds that veil him from our sight,
    Whilst we our selves become his clouds of witness
    And sing the waning darkness into light,
    His light in us, and ours in him concealed,
    Which all creation waits to see revealed.
