Lovingly in soft
Arms encircled. Life and Light
Long promised firstborn

Of the Lamb. Be glad in Him
He will delight you

Mantle of Mary
Shielding her children, praying
Gracious advocate

Handmaid of the Lord

Let the bones you have 
Crushed rejoice with your gladsome 
Spirit. Contrite joy.

Deep night. Monks slow chant.
Sonorous praise. Light and shade

Look upon Him and
Be radiant. Reflect His

They looked to him and
were radiant. Reflecting
Light. Transformed by light

Desires to be found. In this 
There is hope. And love.

Reflecting what is above.
Serene mountain lake

Kisses sweeter than
Wine. His tender hand, His strong
Arm. Glad submission.

Waters. Restful calm haven.
Prayerful, peaceful heart

My flesh faints. You make me to
Swoon, your breath revives
