Merton’s, You Ask of Me

Here, You ask of me
Nothing to pretend
Just to be content
As Child and Your Friend

Which just simply means
Accept friendship as one
Friendship and Fatherhood
Because I am Your son

Find in this friendship
A binding that is true
One of both Son-ship
And that of Spirit too

You have called me here
To be repeatedly
Born within the Spirit
And as your son to be

Born in light and knowledge
In faith and in unknowing
In poverty and praise
In gratitude, heart showing
