We are here, Holy One.

We are here as witnesses
To those who hurt
Who cry
Who rage
Who have been abused
Who have died
Who have been treated unjustly…

We are here, Holy One. 

We lift up to You
Our Maker and Redeemer
The silent tears
The raging fears
The pain of years…

We are here, Holy One. 

How much we need
Your soothing balm
Your winds of change
Your waves of justice
Your powerful grace
Your love encircling us and our weary world…

and Amen.
