We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a piece from Benjamin Britten's 'Ceremony of Carols.' "Balulalow" refers to Mary's lullaby for the infant Jesus and sung by these young voices it provides the perfect soothing tune for a mid-week meditation.

Balulalow (Old English)

O my deare hert, young Je su sweit
Prepare thy creddil in my spreit,
And I sall rock thee to my hert,
And never mair from thee depart.

But I sall praise thee evermoir
With sanges sweit unto thy gloir;
The knees of my hert sall I bow
And sing that richt Balulalow!
