Poem: Knut Nystedt

O Cross, more radiant that the stars.
Celebrated throughout the earth,
Beloved of the people.
Holier than all things,
Which alone was found worthy
To bear the light of the world;
Blessed Tree. Blessed Nails.
Blest the weight you bore:
Save the flock which today
is gathered to praise you.
