Epiphany Hymn

Incarnational hope hastens hence
on bud, breeze, and blossom
grieving rynds banished in lilacscents.
Hark, the Epiphany Hymn ringshaste
from its loveliest biding-place.
A lavish breach of winter’s curthard sword
an ardent repudiation of death’sdark pall
the out-viening sun of theChristus Lord.
Hark, the Epiphany hymn ringshaste
From its loveliest biding-place
At the refectory of yourloving-care
the transfiguration clarion soundsa call
that didactae could ne’re conveynor spare.
Hark, the Epiphany hymn ringshaste
From its loveliest biding-place
Thus, Gospel comes ensconced inWord and Deed
and the evidence is yourshimmering touch:
Christus Victor, shown in a life’ssown seed.
Hark, the Epiphany hymn ringshaste
From its loveliest biding-place.   –George Grant
