“Seek Not Light, But Water”

It seemed a title so compelling — “”Do not Seek Light my Heart, but Water” — and a prayer fit to make for life’s deep. So I came to adapt Miguel de Unamuno’s poem as a hymn, drawing on his imagery (from Spanish original) as closely as I could.

“Seek Not Light, But Water” Hymn

Set to the tune Coventry Carol, it may be used in seasons of waiting (Advent), of hope (Lent), of renewal (Earth Day).  It was set to slides in the attachment here for use at a United Church of Christ association meeting focused on faith and the environment (Spring, 2010).
