Nothing Between - Joan Clifton Costner

Nothing Between

You placed a veil between us.
We longed to see Your face.
But, only one was chosen to
Enter the Holy Place .
The veil was thick as canvas;
Opaque, no misty dream.
We waited, with our perfect lambs,
And watched the crimson stream.
There came a mighty earthquake,
Deep darkness over the land;
A plaintive call to Heaven,
Pierced side and bleeding hand.
The heavy veil split right in two
As a hand of lightning fell;
The top, down to the bottom ~
Not done by any man - we could tell.
And, suddenly, we knew that we
Were welcomed to God’s heart!
We only need to trust His Son
And let Him have His part.
No one between, but straight to God,
We make our glad petitions!
Our hearts became His very own,
Leaving this tradition.
I grieve to see some step between
The God Who loves us so.
I wish that I could tell the world
This Truth that they should know ...
No one between our hearts and His;
No veil, no man, nothing seen!
We are welcomed to our Father
With nothing in between!
