Hearts Like Cups

Arise, lift up your hearts and shine,
For God’s brightness is covering us.
God, holding out to us gifts,
gifts of the star-child:
courage for love and for wonder
hope in those places we cannot see,
the Holy Presence in suffering and joy.
God’s brightness is covering us.
We hold out our hearts like cups
to catch the stars.
