POEM OF THE DAY: O Glistening Sunlight

by Hildegard of Bingen (1098 – 1179).


O Glistening Sunlight


O glistening starlight,

O most brilliant singular figure

of the royal marriage,

O glowing gem:

You are arrayed as a person of high rank                       5

who has no mark nor wrinkle;


You are also an angel’s companion

and a citizen of sacredness.


Run, flee from the ancient destroyer’s cave!

Come, enter into the palace of the King.                      10
