While Looking Up

Foment in us
Fell photons of your light
That we might walk nonplussed
Lightfully as your sons,
Bear your blinding name
Through battlefields of night,
Redeemed among your holy ones,
Delivered from star-fallen shame,
Shackles broken,
Slavery undone,
Knees new fallen,
We stammer troth,
In fealty kindled
By your Love's forgiving flame.
