May I be Heaven’s message present and earthed.

Let every moment tell

in rhythms of usefulness;

prayers of encouragement;

building where there has
been brokenness.

Let all the strife
that my life
once was made of
turn to peace.

Let this laying down
of my life, even yet
be as the evening sacrifice,

so others walk safely
in peace
and good company.

Let me feel some part of Your burden,

help carry their weight,

and touch Heaven’s joy.
