SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

That One: A Poem on Walking with God
by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
1981

 

That One Who, ages past, lit these stars
. . . in a dark sky

And Who, in time to come,
. . . shall snuff them out again

Who moved those mountains there
. . . up from the cold earth

And stirs, like blue light, across the faces
. . . of the holy congregation

Who shines in sunlight on the morning grass

Whispers to cicadas on the breeze

Runs with the horses in the field

And Who, Vast as He is, and Wonderful,
. . . flows, like a river,
. . . . . . through this warp of time and space

That One
. . . dwells in my heart,
. . . speaks to my soul with every breath I breathe

Day’s light, walks by my side …

Night’s guide, enfolds me.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars.
