All these things I saw in Jesus’ face
A night where candles burn in space, A dream,
A dream beyond our reaching;
A noon where all shepherds are at peace
And happy that their flocks are grazing;
An eventide and a stillness and a homecoming;
Then a sleep and a dream.
All these things I saw in Jesus’ face.
(Adapted from Kahlil Gibran, 1995, Jesus the Son of Man)
