God of still waiting,
God of deep longing,
God of the heart's true rest:
hold us in fathomless peace,
guard us with unwaning love.

Spirit of promise,
Spirit of purpose,
Spirit of ceaseless prayer:
bathe us in life full and free,
kindle our wonder and hope.

Word who comes to us,
Word who lives with us,
word who disturbs and heals:
silence our chattering fears,
waken our unconscious faith.

Word true and faithful,
hope-bringing Spirit,
God of enfolding love:
come in your fullness and grace,
work through our lives for your praise.

--Carl P. Daw, Jr.

Based on the composer's 2001 hymntune HESYCHIA, this inward-looking anthem exquisitely sets a contemplative prayer of Carl Daw for two-part mixed voices and organ or keyboard. The deeply felt text is especially appropriate for use during Advent, at Pentecost, or at any time of prayer.
