let there be peace…

Dancing through my head…

The Harlem Boys Choir

We turn to you, O God of every nation;

Giver of life and origin of good;

Your love is at the heart of all creation,

Your hurt is people’s broken brotherhood.

We turn to you that we may be forgiven

For crucifying Christ on earth again.

We know that we have never wholly striven,

Forgetting self, to love the other man.

Free every heart from pride and self-reliance,

Our ways of thought inspire with simple grace;

Break down among us barriers of defiance,

Speak to the soul of all the human race.

Teach us, good Lord, to serve the need of  others,

Help us to give and not to count the cost.

Unite us all for we are born as brothers;

Defeat our Babel with your Pentecost.

(Hymn from The Liturgy of The Hours)
