"I see a distant land: it shines so clear. Sometimes it seems so far, sometimes so near." Composed in 1990 soon after the demolition of the Berlin Wall, this deeply expressive prayer for unity is even more gripping since the attacks of 9/11. John's evocative text does not center on the "distant land" and its inherent glories, rather it emphasizes the journey of life; the "dusty roads" that we all travel together toward a united and free people. It's a cry to God for strength in the journey that is timely and profoundly moving!
