In the blanketing darkness around me
I sense the timeless souls
in harmony we sing
and our words flow from lips to praise
I let tears run down my face
and offer up to God my pain.
The joy in the prayers released
to diffuse in the world surrounding
if only they knew
the spirit of these days.
Patterns of light and shadow
played around the columns and windows
the soft footsteps matching the music
as we circled round this place.
My God, my Adored One
in every way we prayed
in silence offered up our devotion
with thundering voices cried out in adoration
and returned to life undismayed.
