Holy Week 2003


Bound up with Jesus and The Father's love
I knew the stillness of the Holy Ghost;
But with the Paschal light I felt Him move
To lead me from The Tomb to Pentecost:
His is the promise of a joyful Lent
From Easter kindling to unfolding fire,
Surpassing treasure for Our Lord's ascent,
The source of Grace to comfort and inspire. 

Teach us to burn with His celestial flame
That we may bear His radiance as a torch
To those who have not learned to speak His name
With fire that warms and lights but cannot scorch:
And may we seek its brightness in the day
When worldly light obscures that light sublime;
And feel its comfort when we watch and pray
As our companion past the end of time.
