Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

153. O Hear, My People, Hear Me Well

O hear, my people, hear me well:
"I have no need for sacrifice;
but mercy, loving kindness shall
alone for life and good suffice."

Then source of peace, lead us to peace,
a place profound, and wholly true.
And lead us to a mastery
o'er drives in us that war pursue.

May deeds we do inscribe our names
as blessings in the Book of Life.
O source of peace, lead us to heal.
O source of peace, lead us from strife.
