May I wake

 

Lord,
May I wake with a prayer on my lips,
And rise with a prayer in my mind,
For you are the giver of faith, hope, and love,
My Father, eternally kind.

Lord,
May I live with a prayer on my lips,
And work with a prayer in my heart,
For you are my fortress, my strength, and my rock,
So we are never apart.

Lord,
May I serve with a prayer on my lips,
And rest with a prayer in my soul,
For you are the giver of infinite life,
And your sacrifice, Lord, makes me whole.

At one with you,
Your temple, Lord, 
Where all is well.
