The earth draws in warmth from the sun, and holds the heat like kindling.
Soon the trees and grasses will dispel the deadness and spring forth with new life. May this be true of us, also.
Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord. You have put more joy in my heart than when their wheat and new wine have yielded abundantly. In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for You, Lord, alone make me dwell in safety and confident trust.
–Psalm 4: 6-8
