Ready for Silence (Madeleine L’ Engle)

 

Bij de eerste zondag van de Advent

 

 
Edinburgh Christmas Market door Paul Pacey, 2012

 

 

Ready for Silence

Then hear now the silence
He comes in the silence
in silence he enters
the womb of the bearer
in silence he goes to
the realm of the shadows
redeeming and shriving
in silence he moves from
the grave cloths, the dark tomb
in silence he rises
ascends to the glory
leaving his promise
leaving his comfort
leaving his silence

So come now, Lord Jesus
Come in your silence
breaking our noising
laughter of panic
breaking this earth’s time
breaking us breaking us
quickly Lord Jesus
make no long tarrying

When will you come
and how will you come
and will we be ready
for silence
your silence

 

 
Madeleine L’Engle (29 november 1918 – 6 september 2007)
Kerstmarkt in New York, de geboorteplaats van Madeleine L’Engle
