This Blessed Advent Morning

That pew
I occupied it again
This morning
That pew
Often hard and stiffening
Did soften and ease
This blessed Advent morning.

The songs
We sang them again
This morning
The songs
Recently more breathless noise
Resonated deeply
This blessed Advent morning.

My sins
We confessed them again
This morning
My sins
Which accuse and condemn
Were justly silenced
This blessed Advent morning.

The news
We celebrated it again
This morning
The news
Which has never come to me in dreams
Came in the story of a dreamer
This blessed Advent morning.

The Word
I heard it again
This morning.
The Word
Often passé is now anticipated
A babe born in the House of Bread
This blessed Advent morning.
