Between Two Worlds

Optional song link for Between Two Worlds:

one foot in heaven, one foot on the earth
I have the best pearl, yet I still search
God is my beloved, yet I find much to my shame
that I am still unfinished for a peace I cannot name.

‘cause I’m between two worlds but a citizen of none
I long for heaven but love this dust and sand,
I stand divided now, praying let Your will be done
but then I do my own, Lord reconcile this man.

I want to stay here, yet I want to leave
the joy that You promised is so hard to believe
all that I possess is nothing more than straw
yet my human frailty makes it hard to leave it all

to live in this world, but not to be a worldly man
to traverse across my country as in a strange and foreign land
to love but not to cling, to use but not to own
to dwell amongst my people but to never find my home

Between Two Worlds – sublime!

Fr. Joseph, I really like this song. So well writen and performed. Indeed, we are travelers caught between the organic sensations of earth and the sweet bliss of heaven.

Between Two Worlds- St. Francis

St. Francis felt this pull. The tension allowed God to live within him in the now in real ways.  May our lives of prayer inspire us to action with great joy and peace! Thanks, Father Joseph! Bravo!
