in this waiting,
we stand in the silence,
surrounded by the faithful of today.
And the saints of old,
who watched and waited,
praised and prayed,
had visions and discouragements,
whisper to us on the winds of the Spirit,
May we put down deep roots
in this quiet witness
of time and place and holiness,
and hear Your call
with hearts of hope and faith.
For we know, Divine One,
You shall build Your tabernacle among us
and You will be our God
and we will be Your people.
