You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

2. Who is This

Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, 
perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, 
with all powders of the merchant? 

Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, 
where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon: 
for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions? 

Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, 
I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense. 
Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.

4. Awake / Sleep Serenade

Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; 
blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. 
I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; 
I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; 
I have drunk my wine with my milk: 
eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved. 

I sleep, but my heart waketh:
