Beneath the Canopy of Heaven
Traveling between bondage
and the promised land,
Abraham, Lehi, and the
house of Israel dwelt in tents.
Unhindered by the weight of the world,
they left permanence of marble and mortar,
and ate sweet meat provided by the Lord.
We follow the fathers, pilgrim the path.
Camping as companies,
we circle the center, plant the pole,
set the stakes, lengthen the cords.
Through forest-fragrant boweries and
tent’s thin skin, we hear the Spirit’s voice,
see Heaven’s light. Unencumbered,
we can move in a moment, worship as one,
ascend the mountain, behold the Son.
