21 December 2015

from the silence of that night
arose an everlasting star
singing through the darkness
rays of salvation from afar
into my eyes of blackness
melting tears into my heart
and as I awake
I turn
I rise
deeply inhale my Lord's salvation
my breathe becomes my soul
and falls from my lips
prostrated upon the ground
seeps into the soil
through which it flows
until from within all living
we in one deep exhalted chorus
everlastingly adore

 the difficulty of translation   from the silence of that night   Once again following in your tracks.
