In the depths of the night, there are embers that keep watch,
It doesn’t take much for the ashes to ignite.
In the depths of suffering, hope lies dormant,
it takes so little for its strength to awaken.
In the midst of our confusion, there is a silence that beckons,
it takes so little for its peace to flow like a river.
In the midst of our noise, our sterile words, there is a silence that listens,
it takes so little for its truth to burst forth.
In the depths of our solitude, there is a trace of light,
it takes so little to recognise the passage of the Friend.
Breathe into our lives, Spirit of God!
