The Mystic's Prayer

by Unity Singers, Unity Church Unitarian, St. Paul, Ruth Palmer, cond.

A brief anthem appropriate for Unitarian-Universalist services


Lay me to sleep in sheltering flame,
O Master of the Hidden Fire!
Wash pure my heart, and cleanse for me
My soul’s desire.
In flame of sunrise bathe my mind,
O Master of the Hidden Fire,
That, when I wake, cleareyed may be
My soul’s desire.
William Sharp (1856–1902)
