Luther’s Nordic Choir, Allen Hightower, conductor performs Susan LaBarr’s setting of Sara Teasdale’s poem.

Grace Before Sleep

How can our minds and bodies be
Grateful enough that we have spent,
Here in this generous room…
This evening of content?

Each one of us has walked through storm
And fled the wolves along the road;
But here the hearth is wide and warm,
And for this shelter and this light
Accept, O Lord, our thanks to-night.

SARA TEASDALE (1884-1933)
