Byzantine Hymn / Bizantynse Gesang

from Abba by Frieda van den Heever



Serene light
shining in the ground of my being, draw me to yourself.
Draw me past the snares of the senses, out of the mazes of the mind.
Free me from symbols, from words
that I may discover the signified:
the word unspoken in the darkness that veils the ground of my being.
Draw me
Free me
Ground of my Being.
Helder lig wat skyn
in die grond van my wese
vul my van hoek tot kant.
Trek my verby die wippe van my sinne, uit die web van my verstand.
Red my van woorde, van tekens
dat ek die betekenis kan ontdek:
die woord nog ongeuiter in die duister wat die grond van my wese bedek.
Trek my, bevry my Soek my, kry my Grond van my Wese.


from Abba, released January 13, 2021
