Representative Text

1 Give us, O God, the grace to see
Your smile within the morning light;
Your signature upon the sea;
Your shadow in the blackest night.

2 Give us, O God, the grace to hear
Your Word when marble turns to clay;
Your voice when thunder clouds appear;
Your answer when the mountains sway.

3 Give us, O God, the grace to feel
Your breath upon the winds of change;
Your kiss in sacraments that heal;
Your hand in what the years arrange.

4 Give us, O God, the grace to be
Convinced when miracles are rare;
Your truth when stars turn ebony;
Your saints till earth has no despair.

Amen.
