Oh Lord

O Lord, our Lord…
Within each moment
we are blessed with faith,
we have hope in what is to come,
yet we continue to look for love.

O Lord, our Lord…
Give us each our own breath
to speak for those who cannot speak,
to listen to those who are not heard,
to stand for those who cannot,
and to see our own sin when we fail to do so.

O Lord, our Lord…
We give thanks
for the day,
for the night,
for the thirst,
for the hunger,
for keeping us always in need.
