Hymn from Morning Prayer during Lent

Creator of the earth and skies,

To whom the words of life belong,

Grant us thy truth to make us wise;

Grant us thy power to make us strong.

Like theirs of old, our life is death,

Our light is darkness, till we see

The eternal Word made flesh and breath,

The God who walked by Galilee.

We have not known thee: to the skies

Our monuments of folly soar,

And all our self-wrought miseries

Have made us trust ourselves the more.

We have not loved thee: far and wide

The wreckage of our hatred spreads,

And evils wrought by human pride

Recoil on unrepentant heads.

For this, our foolish confidence,

Our pride of knowledge and our sin,

We come to thee in penitence;

In us the work of grace begin.

It could be because it looks so peaceful and quiet there.  I agree the poem is great!
