Lighten the Darkness

The collect from Sunday implores that God would lighten the darkness of our hearts by His gracious visitation.

After a cruddy day on Wednesday, it is such a relief that He does indeed answer those prayers. Church on Wednesday night, the sacraments, a long choir rehearsal full of Christmas hymnody, and then a Thursday morning of Matins and Bible study...

It may not solve any of the problems, but
His visitation does indeed lighten the darkness of our hearts.

What was that Luther said about music driving away the devil?
