Thou art the song of my heart in the morning;
Thou art the dawn of truth in my soul.
Thou art the dew of the rose's adorning;
Thou art the woven whole.
Thine is the grace to be steadfast in danger;
Thine is the peace that none can destroy.
Thine is the face of the need-riven stranger;
Thine are the wings of joy.
Thou art the deep to the deep in me calling;
Thou art a lamp that lights where I tread.
Thy way is steep past the peril of falling;
Thou art my daily bread.
Thine be the praise of my spirit uplifted;
Thou art the sea to each flowing stream.
Thine be the days that are gathered and sifted;
Thou art the deathless dream.
From With or Without Candlelight: A Meditation Anthology, edited by Victoria Safford.
