May Mercy Rise

May the grief-stricken be touched with the tenderest kiss.

May the hunger for hubris be starved as love is heard.

May mercy rise.

 

May the light of beauty shine in the darkest corners.

May hate give way to forgiving Grace.

May mercy rise.

 

May pain and fear be supplanted by communion.

May pride and prejudice succumb to peace.

May mercy rise.

 

May the voiceless sing and open the way.

May the hardened crack under their flood of love.

May mercy rise.

 

May beauty speak the heart of all, in all.

May mercy rise.
