Evening Worship for Holy Week

As is our custom, we are joining with other local churches each night during Holy Week.  Today, amongst a whole host of other things, we sang this, which I love:

Thank you for the night,
the sign that day is done,
that life is meant to rest
and sleep to come.

Thank you for the quiet
as silence scatters sound,
while God, in both,
is waiting to be found.

Thank you for the dark
to compliment the light,
as insight, open-eyed,
replaces sight.

Thank you for the word,
which darkness can't contain,
that life, laid down,
is raised to life again.

Thank you for the night,
a measure of your care.
In darkness, as in light,
you, Lord, are there.
