through the open door

A door stands open to heaven,
and we are invited to look through
to see God—
surrounded by the beauty
and diversity and wonder
and power of all creation.
We are invited to see
that all we can see,
bows down before the God we cannot see.
Holy, holy holy!
A door stands open to heaven,
and we are invited to look through
to see we cannot see God.
Holy, holy, holy!
And yet still to know,
that in seeing Jesus—
in seeing love,
we see what cannot be seen.
And even in our imminence,
we then see the absolute transcendence of God.
Holy, holy, holy!
