Though our teeth are set on edge, O God,
let us never forget your name.
Though the night is long with wrestling, O God,
let us never forget your blessing.
Though the sun and moon strike us, O God,
let us never forget your help.
Though the litany of lies grows, O God,
let us never forget we belong to you.
Though justice is slow and faith weary, O God,
let us never lose heart or voice.
Though time is impatient, O God,
let us never forget your fullness.
Though we are plucked up and broken down, O God,
let us never neglect your promise within us.
