Blessed are You, O Lord our God,
Wellspring of our lives.
No word of ours can contain You;
But You are the sea on which we float,
You are the wind that fills our sails,
You are the storm that batters us,
You are the calm that brings us peace.
Open our ears to hear Your word,
Open our eyes to see Your beauty,
Open our hearts to be warmed by Your love.
Free us from our lonely prisons
of fear and selfishness,
And make us over, day by day,
into bearers of Your peace.
