Angel Prayer

By St. Augustine

Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight, and give your angelscharge over those who sleep. Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ. Rest your weary ones.

O Holy Trinity

O Holy Trinity, all praise to YouOne in three, not fully graspingDeeper faith I am asking.
O Holy Trinity, all praise to YouOne in three encircle meMy center ever be.
O Holy Trinity, all praise to YouOne in three, bless us allAnd keep us from a fall.
O Holy Trinity, all praise to YouOne in three, breath of loveBreathe in me from above.
O Holy Trinity, all praise to YouOne in Three, our path enlightenOur sparks of love brighten.
O Holy Trinity, all praise to YouOne in three, Your love we shareWith the Church and all who care.
O Holy Trinity, all praise to YouOne in three, sanctify our beingSo one day, YOU, we will be seeing.

Covenant with God

Covenant with God

God 
knocks at my door 
seeking a home for his son.

Rent is cheap, I say.
I don’t want to rent. I want to buy, says God.
I’m not sure I want to sell,
but you might come in and look around.
I think I will, says God.
I might let you have a room or two.
I like it, says God. I’ll take the two. You might decide to give me more some day.
I can wait, says God.
I’d like to give you more,
but it’s a bit difficult. I need some space for me.
I know, says God, but I’ll wait. I like what I see.
Hm, maybe I can let you have another room.
I really don’t need that much.
Thanks, says God, I’ll take it. I like what I see.
I’d like to give you the whole house
but I’m not sure …
Think on it, says God. I wouldn’t put you out.
Your house would be mine and my son would live in it.
You’d have more space than you’d ever had before.
I don’t understand at all.
I know, says God, but I can’t tell you about that.
You’ll have to discover it for yourself.
That can only happen if you let me have the whole house.
A bit risky, I say.
Yes, says God, but try me.
I’m not sure –
I’ll let you know.
I can wait, says God, I like what I see.
