Be light, O Lord, to our eyes, music to our ears and
contentment to our heart. Be sunlight in our day, food at our
table and rest to us in the night. Let us rejoice to be about
your business and let us live to your praise and glory, now
and for ever. Amen.
John Cosin (1594-1672)
free us to participate more deeply
in the divine dance of creating, redeeming
and healing our world.
release in us a passionate energy
for seeking justice;
for investing in peace;
for tending the needs of fragile human communities;
for befriending and healing the planet.
Companion at the well,
help us to draw and to share fresh clean water,
for the health of our bodies, the clarity of our thinking.
and the wholeness of our soul-making. Amen.
Liz Smith, Leeds District Chair
