Dusty books

 

Lord,
You’re not found 
In dusty books,   
But in the world around us.

Lord,
You’re not found 
In ritual,  
But in silent contemplation.

Lord,
You’re not found 
In required beliefs,
But in everyone you mould.

Lord, 
You’re not found 
In church or shrine,
But in every living soul.
