Meditation for Advent: Day 1

Light within all light

Soul behind all souls

At the break of dawn

At the coming of day

We wait and watch.

 

Your Light with the morning light

Your Soul with the human soul

Your presence becoming to us from the heart of life.

 

In the dawning of this day

Let us know fresh shinings in our soul.

In the growing colours of new beginning all around us.

Let us know the first lights of our heart.

 

Great Star of morning

Inner flame of the universe

Let us be a colour in the new dawning.
