As the fever of day calms towards
May all that is strained in us come to
We pray for all who suffered
May an unexpected serenity surprise
For those who risk their lives each
day for peace.
May their hearts glimpse providence
at the heart of history,
That those who make riches from
violence and war
Might hear in their dreams the cries
of the lost
That we might see through our fear
of each other
A new vision to heal our fatal
attraction to aggression.
That those who enjoy the privilege
Might not forget their tormented
brothers and sisters.
That the wolf might lie down with
That our swords be beaten into
And no hurt or harm be done
Anywhere along the holy mountain.
