Great Light

On this day in which the stillness and the silence overwhelms the noise I make trying to drown it out, this is my prayer:

Great Light, Mover of all that is moving and at rest, be my Journey, and my far Destination, be my Want and my and my Fulfilling, be my Sowing and my Reaping, be my glad Song and my stark Silence. Be my Sword and my strong Shield, be my Lantern and my dark Night, be my everlasting Strength and my piteous Weakness. Be my Greeting and my parting Prayer, be my bright Vision and my Blindness, be my Joy and my sharp Grief, be my sad Death and my sure Resurrection!
