Only on a high and holy place

Only on a high and holy place would Jesus steal away
To set aside earthly concerns and cares
A remote mountain, a high peak, where the day
Could be spent in solitude.

Only on a high and holy place would Jesus steal away
Holy only for its proximity to him and to the Father
A solitary bluff, a narrow outcropping, where the day
Would be spent in prayer.

Only on a high and holy place would Jesus steal away
High only for its height,
Its importance found only in God’s presence, where I too wish to spend the day
In prayer and in his presence. So let it be.
