Original text and translations
1. If we desire a deeper life
then we must choose between
the passage God proposes and
the passage we have dreamed.
For early dreams, though big and broad,
and have no depth until God's hand
can dredge a dreamer's silt.
2. If we desire a better world,
then life must run its course
in us, a river running to
the thirsty from its Source.
And we, as deepened channels, bless
the water on its way,
rejoicing that we touch and know
the Life that we convey.
