"This, then is our desert:
to live facing despair,
but not to consent.
To trample it down under hope in the Cross.
To wage war against despair unceasingly.
That war is our wilderness.
If we wage it courageously,
we will find Christ at our side.
If we cannot face it,
we will never find him."

O Taste and See
The beautifully simple and timeless motet by Ralph Vaughan Williams:
from Psalm 34. 8 O taste and see how gracious the Lord is: blest is the man that trusteth in him.
