Poetry, VOLUME 12

Lectionary Poetry – Christmas Week 2 (Year A)

With the dawn of a new church year, we are launching a new feature on our website, a weekly post of poetry that resonates with the lectionary readings for that week (Revised Common Lectionary).

Lectionary Reading:  John 1:1-10

 

Temper My Intemperance
Madeleine L’Engle

Found in
The Ordering of Love

SNIPPET:
Temper my intemperance, O Lord,
O hallowed, O adored,
My heart’s creator, mighty, wild,
Temper Thy bewildered child.
