In the quiet of this day,
in the safety of this place,
Holy Presence, hear me pray,
soothe my spirit with your peace.

Take the tangle of my thought,
take the tension from my frame,
free within me what is fraught,
still the waves I cannot tame.

I am tired and out of tune:
it is you who gives new song.
I am fearful and alone:
bring me home where I belong.

What I am, you truly know,
more than lover, more than friend,
you the light to whom I grow,
you my meaning and my end.

Alleluia, allelu,
Alleluia, allelu,
Alleluia, allelu,
Alleluia, allelu.
