This Day




This day all dark is filled with wondrous light;
The world’s great stone of grief is rolled away.
God’s word is kept—O truly blessed night!

Grim death becomes an open door for flight
To life eternal; newness from decay.
This day all dark is filled with wondrous light.

Our Jesus lives and shares with us His might
To conquer sin and follow in His way.
God’s word is kept—O truly blessed night!

From depths He draws and lifts us to the height
Of life in Him, although our deeds betray.
This day all dark is filled with wondrous light.

How gently he appears to inner sight
When humanly we doubt or fear, yet pray:
God’s word is kept—O truly blessed night!

Sweet Christ, our life, our peace, and all delight,
You bid us trust our deepest hopes this day.
This day all dark is filled with wondrous light;
God’s word is kept—O truly blessed night!

One of our Sisters meditates on the great Easter Vigil. Blessed Easter to one and all!
