Invocation for Lent


Into the dark world

A snowdrop comes,

A blessing 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 lighten our journey

Through Lent and beyond.
