Evening Star

Evening Star, Morning Star,
How your love has won my heart –
You came, you saw, you conquered,
With one twinkle of your gaze.

My Evening Star, my Morning Star,
Forever you the first and last;
How your touch has healed my land
With welcome in its wings.

Brightest Star, bravest Star,
pulsing where death's arrows mar,
clothing me in flaming light
against the terrors of the night.

Only Star, my whole desire,
how united spirits' fire
fills our cups with holy wine,
keeps me yours and keeps you mine.
