As We Travel in Unknown Lands

Boy lighting candle while man chalice for him.

We kindle a flame we trust will lead us forward as we travel
in unknown lands,
where the question, “Shall I ever get there?” resounds:
A clear pure note in every silence.

Note: this chalice lighting is based on reading #486 by Dag Hammarskjöld in Singing the Living Tradition.
