amaliacarmel The earnestness of the harmonies, the purity of the melody, the brilliance of the way the Words and music illustrate the meaning so well, I am in love with this song! Somehow it evokes the longing we all have to be near our Creator, while at the same time celebrating the reality that His Promised One is come. Thank you so much, Luke, from this New Mexico fan and fellow musician!

Promised One

I am the Mystic Fane which the Hand of Omnipotence hath reared.
I am the Lamp which the Finger of God hath lit within its niche
and caused to shine with deathless splendour.
I am the Flame of that supernal Light
that glowed upon Sinai in the gladsome Spot,
and lay concealed in the midst of the Burning Bush.

I am, I am, I am, the promised One!
I am the One whose name you have for a thousand years invoked,
at whose mention you have risen, whose advent you have longed to witness,
and the hour of whose Revelation you have prayed God to hasten.
