In Between the Cross and Rising

From the Boundless Life collection

1. In between the Cross and Rising,
In between our grief and light,
Lie the tombs of hibernation,
Times of inner healing’s might.

2. Praise our times of restful sleeping
And praise Sabbath’s nurtured rest,
Praise for endings to our thinking,
Realm of every dreamlike quest.

3. Fear not spirit’s exploration.
Fear not shadows deep inside.
Easter has its consummation
As we each become Christ’s bride.
