I trust You now to send an eternal
wise Master, who'll be angry at us as
He is good: may His radiance dazzle
illumine us beneath this winter's sad

is built upon, the world's establishment,
from Your innermost forge pour down fire
on every wall, on all sides, let it flame

to lean on You alone, fall back into
their bleak ocean of cold obscure passions.

and may those who have lived on an ardent
unchanging love, not self-devouring,
dwell lovingly in brighter safer light.
