YOU HAVE LED ME THROUGH THE DARKNESS

from Take Me to Church


O Lord, you have led me through the darkness
(you have led me through the darkness);
heaven-garbed was the shadow,
lunar traces came the sun.
O God, watcher of the white-frocked
anemone and her tide, builder
of the bluffs: emigration
my only home. Let wharves
where halcyon doves descend
be eminent in mind,
prefigure the Ghost.
O Christ supernal, have your way
(you have led me through the darkness)
to adoration's skies above.
