• Good Lord the Light

    Christian Wiman

    Winter 2017

    Good morning misery,
    goodbye belief,
    good Lord the light
    cutting across the lake
    so long gone
    to ice—

    There is an under, always,
    through which things still move, breathe,
    and have their being,
    quick coals and crimsons
    no one need see
    to see.

    Christian Wiman is the author of My Bright Abyss: Meditation of a Modern Believer (FSG 2013) and He Held Radical Light: The Art of Faith, the Faith of Art (FSG 2018).
