SURSUM CORDA, by            
First Line: Lift up your hearts, you whom the spring days urge
Last Line: In sea and sun, his work of love, a new day starts!
Subject(s): Eucharist; Communion


Lift up your hearts, you whom the spring days urge
To walk the forest ways to cool beach sands,
And swim the leaping waves -- with quickened hands
Fling wide the plumage of the restless surge.
You know the high sea spray will wash and purge
The weariness of flesh ... You understand
That life is vibrant when the rhythmic band
Of praise and love and faith in God emerge!

Lift up your hearts to sunlight in the field;
Of scented winds and rains there is no dearth;
The climbing sun that quickens half the earth,
Beats on the wayside trees whose great arms shield
The grasses' muted throbbings in their birth:
Let shadows drift and peace glide to your hearts --
In sea and sun, His work of love, a new day starts!
