• Eternal God,
    lead me now
    out of the familiar setting
    of my doubts and fears,
    beyond my pride
    and my need to be secure
    into a strange and graceful ease
    with my true proportions
    and with yours;
    that in boundless silence
    I may grow
    strong enough to endure
    and flexible enough to share
    your grace.
