POEM OF THE MONTH

April 2020

A  prayer for Lent and springtime

 

 

Lord of green and growing spring -

Whose gentle power

Waylays us in an unexpected flower -

Today we bring

Garlands of mingled hope and fear;

But You are here,

Though fears prevail and hopes are few:

God of springtime, make us new.

 

 

Christ of sad and solemn Lent,

We watch You go

Towards a cruel trial whose end we know;

And so present

New wreaths of joy to crown Your pain:

For You will reign.

Such is our faith – so strangely true:

God of springtime, make us new

 

 

Almighty Victor, Easter King -

Who played and won,

And proved that love sustains the stars and sun -

We dare to bring

Our fragile lives for grace to fill

With glad goodwill;

And speak, in simplest love, with You.

God of springtime, make us new.
