Oh Lord, at dawn
and trembling with joy,
the grace of your call wraps me up,
and I discover the greatness of your mercy
in my fragile answer:
A Father, listening to the cries of his people,
enfolding in his arms the promised salvation
of the alliance.
Today, too many words, and only a heartbeat speaks within me:
the soft and rebellious whisper of your Spirit
resounding in my littleness,
widening my horizon
looking for my brothers and sisters,
marginalised, disenfranchised, disappeared and voiceless,
Welcome me in your arms,
wake me from my securities,
curl me up in your heart of hearts,
and bless me with the abundance of your call...
For you are my God.
