Poem: "Moonless Darkness Stands Between" by Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J.
Moonless darkness stands between.
Past, O Past, no more be seen!
But the Bethlehem star may lead me
To the sight of Him Who freed me
From the self that I have been.
Make me pure, Lord:
Thou art holy;
Make me meek, Lord:
Thou wert lowly;
Now beginning, and alway:
Now begin, on Christmas Day.
