All you make

 

Lord, 
All you make
Becomes your sacred body; 

All living things 
Are born
Within your mind; 

And all of us
Are temples 
Of your Spirit,

For your heart 
Beats within 
All humankind.

Draw me ever closer

 

Lord,
Draw me ever closer 
To your mind, 
So I may share your love 
For humankind.

To your soul,
So I may lose my self, 
And reach my goal.
