O Antiphons for Summer

O Long Days of Extended Light,
Come! Come with your wide expansive arms.
Open our eyes to the daily miracle of life.
Slip into our distracted hearts with every dawn.
Expand our ability to see beauty in our world.
O Come!

O Gardens of Plenty,
Come! Come bless us with your wealth.
Sustain us with your abundance.
Remind us of the world’s hunger.
Nudge us to give from our fullness.
O Come!

O Festivals, Fireworks, Feasts and Fairs,
Come! Come with barbecues, crafts, and games.
Unite us in the common bond of our desire for joy.
Entertain us with the simple things of life.
Deepen our gratitude for all things good.
O Come!

O Antiphons for Summer

O fireflies of beautiful evenings,
Come! Come enchant us with your mystic dance.
Brighten our evening with your little lights.
lead us away from day’s duties.
Lift our spirits into your carefree flight.
O Come!
