Laughs, cries, songs tumble forth! Holy Joy! Hands dance heartbeats on drums, keys, strings. Bethlehem Newborn heals torn families, brings hope to bombed towns and battered tribes. Strong Love rescues destitute parents but wealth wielders scatter with their thoughts. Grandparent of Galaxies powers growing cycles, weaves weather patterns. Sun and Storm Maestro has no regard for technocrats or self-made musclers. Sweet Shalom feeds and shelters God-folk. Sighs of relief! High fives all around!
Whereas from Creator's visionary playtimes all species originate and evolve-- green mosses, trees with varied bark textures, creatures that swim, fly, dig, climb, step or run-- and whereas all live and die by divine appointment-- elephant, donkey, cock and hen alike, blind to injustice, deaf to our own hearts-- yet whereas Holy Love's humble messengers emerge on every continent, and lawmakers start serving the common good, protecting rights, ensuring clean air, water and soil-- Now therefore be it proclaimed in all jurisdictions: Ageless Love rules with endless energy.
All Powerful Ever Gentle One, in awe of You, voices soar, lives shine. Every day Silence, Word and Action interplay, honoring You anew. Animals teach us instinctive trust: there is plenty; Love gives all we need. At home or outdoors with grandchildren Your macro/ micro Presence thrills us. Joyseeds from You always yield heart fruit. Refreshed by Your Undiluted Love we respect all people equally. Wow! Holy earth, sky and sea creatures!
Perfect, ever-resilient Love from whom all life emanates, on whom all depend, teach us Peace. War-resistant, violence-proof Love, reprogram fear-based instincts; unite youth leaders and elders. You give our brief lives infinite worth, all-consuming Fire of Truth. Psalm-writers restore sanity. Happiness is being each other's healers in Heaven's earth-rooms, meeting every need in Your Joy.
Listener in Chief, receive our sighs. Ready Responder, we're half dead! Love Embodied, we recall stories: You righted wrongs; You resolved conflicts. Creation's beauty sustains us, but treaties are forgotten, rights trampled. Write Your New Dawn Truth through poets' pens; Peace Teacher, free our speech and actions. We yearn to follow You, Fearless One.
I know no We right now, feel only me, yet sense You, Love, hearing hell-on-earth bawls, seeing crestfallen eyes. Wasting away in my who-cares-anyway cell, I call Jesus, Help refugees! Free water protectors! Eternal Love Spirit puts me in solidarity with each displaced person. God, send New Advent Hope!
Lonely spirits sigh for You, Great Love; every bone and muscle craves Your strength. Some light candles; others wave smudge sticks. Hands up, we surrender in silence. Turn off our auto-pilot chatter, Heart Guide; defuse anger's explosives. Keep us on Your Peacemaking Wavelength, free of sound byte darts and impulses. Most Perceptive Counselor, help us correct our vision through friends' critiques. When will monied power grabbers lose their tearannical grip on sad souls?
Creator to whom all thanks is due, make sad, spiteful hearts grateful anew. Just Judge, heap shame on all who pollute, rob, rape, boast, abuse, lie and exploit. Merciful One, thank You for sneak peeks of Earth's inheritance by the meek.
