for a cloudy day--inner sunshine

I'm the secret Fire in everything, and everything smells like Me.
The living breathe in My sweet perfume,
and they breathe out praise of Me.
They never die
because I am their Life.

I flame out--intense, godly Life--over the shining fields of corn,
I glow in the shimmer of the fire's embers,
I burn in the sun and the moon and the stars.
The secret Life of Me breathes in the wind
and holds all things together soulfully.

This is God's voice.

~Hildegard of Bingen, "Hymn"~
