Sunday Prayer 35

in darkness the day begins,
lingering formless and void
before dawn.
come, Holy Spirit, come.
hover over the face of this day,
drawing divine life forth.
generate good things
from morning gloom
that Your light might shine
abroad in our hearts all day.

speak, Jesus the Word, speak.
show the way into this day
for Your words wield light
upon wild, wandering ways.
name Your works in us
that we might know the way to go,
for Your Name only is salvation.

stand, Father, stand.
Creative King, call forth life
and lead us alive to You.
All-powerful Lord, guide and guar us
as we sing salvation songs
on this pilgrim path.
