Scripture: Isaiah 35:4-7a

read by Doug Hammond


Say to those who are of a fearful heart, “Be strong, do not fear! Here is your God. He will come with vengeance, with terrible recompense. He will come and save you.”


Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the speechless sing for joy. For waters shall break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert; the burning sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water; the haunt of jackals shall become a swamp, the grass shall become reeds and rushes.

Poem

by Rainier Maria Rilke

from his Book of Hours

read by Margaret Francik


They see not the faintest glimmer of morning

and listen in vain for the cock's crow.

The night is a huge house

where doors torn open by terrified hands

lead into endless corridors, and there's no way out.

God, every night is like that.

Always there are some awake,

who turn, turn, and do not find you.

Don't you hear them crying out

as they go farther and farther down?

Surely you hear them weep; for they are weeping.

I seek you, because you are passing

right by my door. Whom should I turn to,

if not the one whose darkness

is darker than night, the only one

who keeps vigil with no candle,

and is not afraid--

the deep one, whose being I trust,

for it breaks through the earth into trees,

and rises,

when I bow my head,

faint as a fragrance

from the soil.
