When I awaken, May I face the dawn, Receive your grace, Revive my soul, And set out in faith and prayer. And, when I set out, May I let you lead me To where I need to be, To work you call me to do, To people, connections, and community. And, when the day is done, May I really retreat— Resting in your presence, Releasing my cares, Resigning myself to a deep and peaceful sleep. And, when I drift off to sleep, And my body heals, My mind processes, And my spirit dreams, May I surrender to that blessed moment. And when I awaken, Again and again, Moment by moment, Day by day, May I live a song of gratitude. O Generative Spirit, Giver of Life, Source of Connection, Divine Love, I offer my heartfelt thanks. Amen.
