Tree of Fire

Tune Name: EDSON

Lyrics as Poetry

Tree of Fire,
in sapphire flame outspreading,
centre of holy ground, of pain and healing,
Rock of Dreams,
Red in the desert rising,
measure and mark of time,
each age recording:

Hill of Feasts,
with milk and honey flowing,
giver of ample good, all creatures feeding,
Cave of Sighs,
latent with whispered longing,
stillness of growth unseen,
and womb of waiting:

Cloud of Dark,
all speech and thought dissolving,
terror of tugging void and stark unknowing,
Wheel of Light,
rainbow of shimmered swirling,
whirlpool of dizzied change,
and dread disturbing:

Sea of Tears,
despair and evil drowning,
ocean of restless care, all hate eroding,
Well of Gifts,
measureless depth of being,
gladness of life revived,
and hope’s refreshing:

Holy is the Name Unnamed,
good unbounded uncontained,
God in Jesus touched and seen:
worship, wonder, praise we bring.
