For the Night and Its Light


Thanks be to you, O God, for the night and its light,

for stars that emerge out of evening skies and the white moon’s radiance.

Thanks be to you for the earth’s unfolding of colour and the bright sheen of creatures from ocean depths.

In the darknesses of the world and in the night of my own soul, let me be looking with longing for light, let me be looking in hope.


~ J. Philip Newell, Celtic Benediction
