Presente 1


Even in our sleep,
pain which cannot forget
falls drop by drop
upon the heart,
until, in our own despair,
against our will,
comes wisdom through
the awful grace of God

We come 

To remember 

To give thanks 

To be still 

To weep 

To seek forgiveness 

And to forgive 

To acknowledge our loss 

To share our pain 

To seek your peace 

Be silent 

Be still 

Alone, empty, before your God 

Say nothing 

Ask nothing 

Be silent 

Be still 

Let your God look upon you 

All you who are thirsty, this is the place for water 

All you who are hungry, this is the place to be fed 

Why spend your earnings on what is not food? 

Why pay for that which fails to satisfy? 

Here, without money 

Here, without price 

All may enjoy the bread of heaven 

God speaks, and all who listen will have life
