A grace

 

May all I eat
Become your living body.

May all I drink
Become your precious blood.

May all my drugs
Become your healing touch, Lord.

May all I am
Become one with your love.

Into your Spirit –

At one with you 
In love,   
For evermore.

Forgiveness and healing

Forgiving those who hurt me
Heals my body,
Mind,
And heart,

But, far beyond these three,
It heals my soul.

Part of you

For evermore, Lord –

For it’s a holy and immortal
Part of you.
