Three Lamps Full

Who’s lights burn bright into the night, but those with oil?
Linger still the wait of blows, three lamps full endured.

Fruit of blooded ground born of Wonder-working George.
Now in four day procession loft his banner high.

Christopher suffered of torments;
Theonas gloried Christ as God;
Anthony with his brothers burned;
Still three lamps full light up the night.

Now brothers let us prepare for the Bridegroom comes!

  1. A wonderful brief piece! Now, a prayer request. My daughter will be headed off to teach in Bogota, Colombia in July and I will then begin exploring returning to my monastic journey. I am not yet convinced that this is right for me, so I’d love to have your prayers.
