Isabel’s Poem for Ascension

You are not only risen and alive, you are Lord.
This is your ascension, your ascendancy over the whole universe.
You stand over and above all that is best in life as it’s source.
You stand above all that is worst as it’s ultimate victor.
You stand above all powers and authorities as judge.
You stand above all failure, weakness and sin as forgiveness and love.
You alone are worthy of total allegiance, total commitment.
You are Lord.
‘My Lord and my God.’
Rex Chapmam. SPCK Book of Christian Prayer 1995.
