(inspired by Psalm 63: 1-8)
You hold my life
and I long for you to hold it.
You hold all of Life
and I am held within it.
My very soul cries out for you:
In the morning I linger at the sunrise
eager for the light to embrace my soul;
At dusk I crumple in the shadows
restless for your dawn-light
to replenish my thirst for you.
May my eyes be open to your creation-sanctuary,
alive to the wonders that speak of you
for this evidence is you constant-promise
and my soul dances in praise of you.
I will speak words of thanks
and live a life of thankfulness
all the days of my life.
This is my prayer,
through all of life.
On this blessing I shall feast and be satisfied
and my every breath will be a canticle of praise.
May I waken in the morning singing it
and let it lull me to sleep as I lie down at night,
And I will cling to you,
and trust your love
that clings to me,
