Grace Be in Me

Spirit of Truth,

Be the breath that fills me now…

Apart from you I am empty and alone;

Enfolded by you I share in love’s full vigor,

The present embrace of a timeless God.

This pilgrimage is a lonely one at times—

Lonely yet endowed with joy,

And full of the holy silence

That whispers to me always…

That I am not alone.

But I am a poor pilgrim;

Oh, make me a better one.

Grace be in me and upon me,

Life’s breath, and hope of my hope;

Grace be in me and upon me,

Until I know of naught but you;

Grace be in me and upon me,

And make me one with you.
