The Scribe

In the beginning was the word:
the word of God.
I work for God,
inscribing His word
and making it glorious.

I offer the pain in my fingers
to the glory of God,
to bring light to the world.
Illumined in gold
the Word is made precious.

I am the work of God:
He gave me the gift
to transform his word,
to enlighten you
and make you luminous.

I am anonymous:
know only the word.
I render it beautiful
so you too will worship
and embrace the numinous.
