Eden’s Dawn

Out of sleep’s mist 
will pride or meekness awake?

The Holy Spirit stirs my ears: “Sleeper, this day
let the wonder of the Holy Trinity awaken you.”
My eyes open, I cry: 
“Father, resurrect Christ’s image in me.”

The Holy Spirit provokes my soul;
“Let the love of the Holy Trinity touch you.” 

I call:
“Christ, redeem the vocation of my breath.”

The Holy Spirit confronts my mind;
“Let the wisdom of the Holy Trinity guide you.” 

I commit:
“The Holy Spirit, renew my mind so I follow You.”
