evensong – September 23


O gracious light

Lord Jesus Christ

the words flow out

to sooth my soul


I hear your voice

in every chord

and whence it comes

I long to go.


From pains of body,

heart and soul,

from flaming fires

of hurt below


We hear the comfort

of your heart,

the washing rhymes

of grace bestowed.
