You were in me, Christ,
you were always there,
and I was not seeking you.
When I had found you, so often
I forgot you. But you continued
to love me. From the depths of my being,
a fire was rising to take hold of me.
I was burning for you to be everything
in my life. I was calling you;
You, the Christ, are the only way,
I have no other.
Brother Roger of Taize, 1915 – 2005, founder of the Taizé Community, an ecumenical monastic community in south-east France
The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
