Arise! Awaken to the new dawn!

Come into the Light; shed darkness

like skin on the snake!

Psalm 82 from Nan Merrill’s Psalms for Praying.

O compassionate Teacher, You are our

merciful Counsellor;

in the Silence You make yourself known

to all who take time to listen.

Would that those in power would heed

your Voice:

“How long will you misuse power

that oppresses the poor?

When will you learn that to act

justly and with integrity will

bring mutual blessing to all?

Do you not know that to give

succour to the poor

and to free people to succeed

will bring you more joy than

All your bank accounts?”

Arise! Awaken to the new dawn!

Come into the Light; shed darkness

like skin on the snake!

For the foundations the cosmos

are shaking with injustice.

I say, “Within you dwells the Beloved,

the Breath of your breath;

Open your heart in the Silence and

Know the One in the many.”

Arise! Join the new creation!

Let harmony reign among all

the nations!
