"As I mused, the fire burned"

Reflection on life as a person of faith.

Easter Hymns

This one was pointed out by my friendly neighbourhood parish priest. Powerful words written and set to music by: Sidney Lanier, 1880.

Into the woods my Master went,
clean forspent, forspent,
into the woods my Master came,
forspent with love and shame.
But the olives they were not blind to him.
the little grey leaves were kind to him,
the thorn tree had a mind to him,
when into the woods he came.

Out of the woods my Master came
and he was well content;
out of the woods my Master came,
content with death and shame.
When death and shame would woo him last,
from under the trees they drew him last,
’twas on a tree they slew him last
when out of the woods he came.
