Lent Week 2 – A green heart

A green heart 


Into a dark world 

a snowdrop comes, 

a benison 

of hope and peace, 

carrying within it 

a green heart, 

symbol of God’s renewing love. 


Come to inhabit our darkness 

Lord Christ, 

for dark and light 

are alike to you. 


May nature’s white candles of hope 

remind us of your birth 

and light our journey 

through Lent and beyond.
