Today, Lord, let my eyes and ears
be open to what you will say:
to hear your Spirit's prompting voice,
to see where you direct my way.

Today, Lord, shape and stretch my mind
until my thoughts reflect your own;
let all my words be kind and true
to make your grace and glory known.

Today, Lord, may my feet be quick
to follow where your calling leads;
and let my hands be skilled and strong
in service of my neighbours' needs.

Today, Lord, let my heart be tuned
to understand what you desire;
and by your Spirit's holy spark,
today, Lord, set my heart on fire.
