  1. (Based on the vivid imagery in Alan Watts' book Myth and Ritual in Christianity. Another in the ancient Welsh form englyn penfyr, and a companion, of sorts, to First Light. The Tenebrae Candle is the VERY last candle to remain lit during the ancient Midnight Matins service.) Eve before an easter morn - on this night, Minds contrite; by sadness torn, We kneel and pray, hearts careworn. Eve before an easter morn - one last light, Candle bright, may seem to mourn Like an empty life outworn. Eve before an easter morn - but this light, Ever right and never lorn, Is a sign of God reborn.
