The Lamb of God, St Mary's Church, Saggart
A Poem/Hymn for Easter
Window from St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin
Agnus Dei qui tollis peccata mundi, dona nobis pacem
This time of year always brings to mind the poem by Katharine Tynan, 'Sheep and Lambs', which you can listen to on YouTube as a hymn. When we're out in the lovely countryside so near us here at the limits of the city, we can see the lambs in the fields, and, especially this week, think of what that poem says about the Lamb of God. Katharine Tynan grew up in Clondalkin, and there is a fine collection of her works in Tallaght Library.
The sheep with their lambs
Passed me by on the road
All in the April evening
I thought on the Lamb of God.
Up in the blue, blue mountains
Dewy pastures were sweet:
Rest for the little bodies,
Rest for the little feet.
But for the Lamb of God,
Up on the hill-top green,
Only a Cross of shame
Two stark crosses between.
