In preparation for a prayer service, I fit the text to “Be Thou my Vision” to the tune of “Morning is Broken” (Bunessan). When I completed that project, I felt inspired to set my own prayerful words to that same tune.

 

God, the Creator, watchful and guiding
Are we aware of what you can do?
Present among us, present within us
God, help us see these glimpses of you
You’re in the quiet amid life’s tough trials
You’re in the moments of respite and peace
We may not acknowledge, these gifts that you grant us
But help us be mindful and more open to you
God, the Creator, fueling our visions
You plant inspiration in each of our souls
God you surround us with wonders to drive us
So help us be mindful and more open to you
God, hear the cries of our hurting world
So many facing oppression and pain
Help us bring progress, hope, and healing
And not lose faith in what you can do
God, the Creator, watchful and guiding
Are we aware of what you can do?
Present among us, present within us
God, help us see these glimpses of you
