Awakening from Ancient Sleep


O, You who are ever
giving life to all life,
moving all creatures,
root of all things,
washing them clean,
wiping out their mistakes,
healing their wounds,
You are our true life -
luminous, wonderful,
awakening the heart
from its ancient sleep.

-Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179)
