At sunrise, Lord, Grasp our hands
And set our feet
At a Godspeed pace
On the path of love and justice.
Fill our eyes with radiant grace
For every of your children
We chance to meet.
Into our work stir
Your redemptive resolve,
Your endless love.
Smooth the edges of our words
That they comfort not cut.
Open the shut doors
To our hearts and houses.
Make of us friends.
Let each tick of the clock
Resound with meaning.
Oh God, at sunset fold us In your arms
Keep us from harm.
Place a pillow of hope
Beneath our heads
That we will dream
Your kingdom come
Your will in our lives
Rest our weary minds
In your tireless presence.
Fill the dark with dancing truth.
That we may wake ready again
To take your hand
And walk your path.
God, You protect me with salvation-armor;
you hold me up with a firm hand,
caress me with your gentle ways.
You cleared the ground under me
so my footing was firm. Psalm 18:32-42 The Msg.
