Union

 

Lord,

May I live
In union with you,

As I always did 
Before you formed me
In the womb,

And as I always will
Beyond my death.

I want to follow you

 

Lord,
I want to follow you,

And grow more like you
Every day;

To bear my cross
Along your way,

Until I reach 
My death.

Then I will be
At one with you,

And with 
The holy Trinity,  

One union 
For infinity – 

Beyond 
My final breath.

Union

Lord,
You walk beside us all,
Stretching out your hand
To offer union with you.

But we’re too busy with our lives
To notice you;
So we never see you waiting patiently,
Nor do we seek your company.

Instead, we complain
That you seem far away,
Insist you’re dead,
Or claim you don’t exist.

But if we reach out
To join our hands with yours,
You will guide us towards union
With you.

And unite my soul with yours

Amen.
