Adventure in God (John Michael Talbot)



That I might take my prey
Of this adventure in God
I had to fly so high
That I was lost from all sight

And through this adventure
I faltered in my flight
Yet Love had already flown so high
That I took my prey

When I ascended higher
My vision was dazzled
The most difficult conquest
Was achieved in this darkness

But since it was Love I was seeking
The leap that I made was blind
Yet Love had already flown so high
That I took my prey

The higher I ascended
In this so lofty seeking
The lower and more subdued
and abased I became

In a way so wonderful
My one flight past a thousand
For the hope of heaven's glory
Will always attain.

And this my only seeking
I have not been disappointed
For Love had already flown so high
That I took my prey

That I might take my prey
Of this adventure in God

Composer: John Michael Talbot (b. 1954)
