O God of Sky and God of Earth (A Reflection on the Prayer of Jesus)

From the Boundless Life collection

O God of sky and God of Earth,

We honor your presence

Within us and beyond.

As we eat may we share your gifts

Of hope and compassion

With all the life of Earth.

 

Give us, O God, forgiving hearts

Affirming each other

With humor and with grace.

May we grow beyond narrow needs

To join in the spreading

Of just and loving peace.

 

You greet us here and everywhere,

In moments of oneness

And spaces of delight.

To all this we now say “Amen”,

Your song is our anthem,

Your dance our cosmic joy.
