Lord of all things whose woundrous gifts to me
Include the shining symbols known as words,
Grant that I might see their mighty power
Only for good.
Help me to pass on small fragments of your
Wisdom, truth and love.
Teach me to touch the unnseen lonely heart
with laughter, or the quick release of tears.
Let me portray the courage that endures
Defiant in the face of pain.
The kindness and gentleness of those
Who fights agains the anger of the world,
The beauty hidden even in the smallest things,
The mystery and the wonder of it all...
Open my ears,my eyes,unlock my heart and speak through me.
