Revelation for a Reader

Fresh upon the listening ear
   Of one who waits upon the Word,
      Comes inspiration, calm and clear,
         As whispers of God’s truth are heard.

New concepts only Mind can give
   Call gently at the open door
      Of consciousness, which longs to live
         In heavenly places, more and more!

The Reader, moved to holy thought
   So sweetly furnished from above,
      Receives the manna, humbly sought
         In grateful prayer—embraced by Love.

The pure desire for growth in grace
   Ascends to heaven—the Christ awaits
      And, shining from this peace-filled place,
         Restores, renews, rejuvenates!

The healing revelation flows,
   As, in this joyful, sacred hour,
      Each God-blessed hearer clearly knows
         That Truth, unveiled, is timeless power.

—Wanda Richard
