We want to know: Lord, touch our minds;
we want to see, so touch our eyes.
Dispel the dark which now confines,
and help us hear the haunting cries.
We want to feel: Lord, touch our hearts,
and touch our hands that we may serve
to strengthen life in all its parts;
give courage, love, and steady nerve.
We want to act: Lord, come, inspire
these lives of ours; Lord, cleanse, refine,
empower our lives with holy fire
that we may know your will divine.
