Luminous Awakening

Hildegard of Bingen
Translated from the Latin by Elizabeth Alexander

Holy Spirit, breath of every being,
root of every creature,
moving in all,
bathing all lives
with compassion and grace,
and caressing pain into boundless joy,
pure light beyond light
luminous awakening,
radiant, bountiful,
resurrecting everything
again and again and again.
