Christ: Uniting Heaven to Earth

“O Jesus, glorious name,

hidden bridge which carries one over

from death to life,

I have come to a stop with you;

I finish with the letter yodh.

Be a bridge for my words

to cross over to your truth.

Make your love a bridge for your servant.

By means of you I shall cross over to your Father.

I will cross over and say, ‘Blessed is the One

who has made his might tender in his offspring.’

(St. Ephraem the Syrian in Faith Adoring the Mystery by Sidney H. Griffith, p 24)
