Advent 3: Flicker

advent3

From the pit you ordain praise,
And light lifts up our heads, like gates
Revealed: unveiled faces,
Bent, upward to your Word.

We light candles and flicker in the black,
Wavering pinpricks during the darkest of the year.
You too once lit a candle, a smoldering wick of a Boy,
Who fell into hell
And set the world on fire.

Purest Zealot,
Counsel us in this Wonder,
Baptize us in this Peace,
Educate us in your Might, and
Govern us in the weight of this Glory.

(inspired by lesson 3: Isaiah 9:2; 6-7)
