Sunday 3 January

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: 

“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”  

And he replied: 

“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. 

             That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.” 

   So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God,  

trod gladly into the night

And He led me towards the hills 

     and the breaking of day in the lone East.’
