The Ghent Altarpiece: Singing Angels, Jan Van Eyck, c. 1427-1429

Hymn for the Forty-Third Day of Lent

Somewhere, somehow,
even now in the universe,
all is joy; all is peace;
all is well.

Show me the place where
the stars celebrate thee;
thine angels and saints dwell
in harmony there.

Prayer is the doorway;
love is the key to the
place where Creation
rejoices in thee.

We must be near, for
the music I hear
is a sweet celebration
in praise of thee.

All of Creation sings,
“All is joy; all is peace;
“all is sweet harmony;
“all is well;
“all is well, indeed.”

Amen.
