“A Grace” by Rudolf Steiner


A Grace

The plant roots quicken in the night of the earth,

The leaves unfold through the might of the air,

The fruit grows ripe through the power of the sun.

So quickens the soul in the shrine of the heart,

And man’s spirit unfolds in the light of the world,

So ripens man’s strength in the glory of God.

And root and leaf and the ripe fruit’s blessing

Support the life of men on earth;

And soul and spirit upward pressing

May raise themselves in thanks to God. 


— Rudolf Steiner,  PRAYERS AND GRACES
