On one of the coldest days of the year thus far

To the Lord Jesus.
I turn to You, my Lord, as to my soul’s bright sun,
For warmth, and for the light that keeps me living on.
For Your part, turn to me, and to my earth draw near,
And all my heart shall green like springtide for You here.

~ Angelus Silesius, CW IV.17
