Sheltering Wings

Archangel Michael from Nidarosdomen

These sheltering wings
Encompass the world
With promise and hope
All flags unfurled
To make discord unity
To nourish the soul
Give light in the darkness
Completes now the whole
These sheltering wings
Perfection of goal

A wing span of light
Beyond human measure
A fluttering presence
Beyond earthly treasure
To heal those with sickness
And mend grieving hearts
Make gentle our memories
When darknesses start
These sheltering wings
No soul kept apart
