Ah LORD God:
how is it that you give all good gifts?
With an open hand and a spirit of grace you give,
and in gratitude we receive you.

Dear Sweet Spirit:
how is it that we each hear you whispering our names?
With an uninhibited holiness and a prophetic heart you whisper,
and in gratitude we hear you & understand.

Ah Blessed Jesus:
how is it that you promise peace beyond understanding?
With the power of God and the indwelling of the Spirit you pour out,
and in humility we overflow with serenity & solidarity.

Most Holy God,
how is it that you gather us from the east & the west, from the north & the south?
With love and a vision for the Kin-dom, you call us together,
and in joy we come.

Let it be so.
