Give us, O Lord,
a calm soul and a clear head,
a broad mind and a generous spirit.

Give us,
a warm heart and a listening ear,
our true voice and a gentle touch.

Give us,
a hunger for justice and a thirst for peace,
a passion for truth and a love of mercy.

Give us,
a painter’s eye and a poet’s tongue,
a saint’s patience and a prophet’s hope.

Give us,
a sage’s wisdom and a fool’s delight,
a pilgrim’s purpose and an angel’s content.
