Text:

Sweet Radiant Mystery

O Sweet Radiant Mystery,
set us free from that which binds,

beckoning the soul to fly.

O Sweet Radiant Mystery,
open our eyes to see beyond
that which hides the soul from light.

O Sweet Radiant Mystery,
help us hear the endless song
of all that is and was and ever shall be.

Catherine Dalton, 2008
