Now the Silence

Now the silence,
Now the peace,
Now the empty hands uplifted;
Now the kneeling,
Now the plea,
Now the Father's arms in welcome;

Now the hearing,
Now the power,
Now the vessel brimmed for pouring;
Now the body,
Now the blood,
Now the joyful celebration;

Now the wedding,
Now the songs,
Now the heart forgiven leaping;
Now the Spirit's visitation,
Now the Son's epiphany,
Now the Father's blessing.
Now.  Now.  Now.
