For Sarah as she is Confirmed..



Signed, Sealed, and Delivered

From a Holy Thursday morn
A fragrant oil bring;
Sound the organ, sound the horn,
The Spirit's anthem sing!

See the apostolic train
Mitered, with a crook,
In Peter the Key-keeper's, chain:
He opens now the book...

Name the Three Who shall inspire,
Call on Her who caused our joy,
Call on all from heaven's choir,
Their assistance to employ...

As the Dozen with their Queen
Once prayed for the Nine Days,
Fire True though now unseen
Consumes you with His rays.

Seven colors, seven stars,
Marked now with His gifts:
Bold in pondering the Scars
On the Tree which our hearts lifts...

May He hold you in His grace,
As onward now you go,
To run, at last to win your race:
Him face-to-face to know.

God bless you!
