Every Day

Every day
       I will offer you, loving God, my heart and mind
              every way I discover you
              in the work your hand has signed;
              help me see I'm your image,
              and you have dreamed what I might be --
every day
       in your Spirit, I'll find the love and energy!


Every day
       I will focus on Christ, and lift my courage high
              through the tides and the tossing of waves that drown,
              and hopes that die;
              help me see stepping out of the boat,
              I'll learn what risk might be --
every day
       in your Spirit, I'll find the love and energy!


Every day
       I will look to Christ, and give thanks for wine and bread,
              through the pain and emptiness
              where your world cries to be fed;
              help me see I can work for change,
              and wherever I might be,
every day
       in your Spirit, I'll find the love and energy!


Every day
       I will walk with you, answer your compassion's claim,
              find my feet and my bearings
              to try deep places in your name:
              help me see I can speak for the faith
              when you're at work in me,
every day
       in your Spirit, I'll find the love and energy!

Every day
       I will take your word, answer your compassion's claim,
              celebrate every sign of hope,
              every deed done in your name;
              help me see you are always there,
              and your light can shine through me,
every day
       in your Spirit, I'll find the love and energy!
