This meditation can be sung to the tune of Let All Mortal Flesh (PICARDY) Let all weary souls find a pathway To a place where hope endures Not a path toward fleeting wishes But toward a persisting lure Drawn to goodness dancing in the dark and dim Hope and Guiding Light shine again. Let all humankind find compassion— Healing hate’s deep festering wounds, Walking in the paths of nonviolence, Standing for what’s sacred and good. Hear our prayer, O Lord, revive us for the task To live out your peace in this world. Let all God’s creation together Join in a most joyous refrain Singing of the goodness that’s rising Singing amidst hardship and pain Good and gracious God, supply us with the tone. Let us make your Spirit known. Let us all find loving kindness And pursue compassionate ways Giv’n to us by our Holy Maker Born in us again and again. God’s enduring love for us will never fade God with us forever, always.
