When you listen to Allegri’s Miserere, prayer happens

Listening to Gregorio Allegri’s Miserere mei Deus, I wrote the following:

O, beauty in all things!
O, joy in my heart!
O, gratefulness spreading!
O, cries of compassion resounding!
May we go forward in community
May we live full lives of service and love.

Listen, the musician sings
See, the people enjoy
Feel, your nerve-endings exposed
This is truth and self meeting
This is hope and life embracing
Now, your spirit rises
Here, your hands reach out
Wait upon the enfolding light
Wait for your moment to act
In decision, peace
In confirmation, thanks
In your days, consolation.
