Tender God,
you have seen my affliction,
and unbound my eyes;
you have bereaved me of the burden
to which I used to cling;
you have woven my pain
into patterns of integrity;
the wounds I cherished
you have turned into honors,
and the scars I kept hidden
into marks of truth.
You have touched me gently;
I have seen your face, and live.

-Mary Ellen Ashcroft
