In this weary world
we too often wake wondering
what shattering of the heart
today will bring
In this world
Joy is an act of resistance
And singing too
Hope is a stubborn practice
An insistent assertion
That not everything can be undone
So let us come now
to lift up our eyes
to the beauty that remains
even now
Let us come to lift our voices
with brave boldness
let us lean into one another and
our breath
with gratitude
Let us be resolute in our
reunion, feeling ourselves still
here, and together,
unwilling to forsake
forgiveness, kindness, friendship, love
Unwilling to concede
any part of ourselves
or our world
To anything other than
and goodness
Look around,
and give thanks.
Every thing we need is here.
Come let us worship together.
