Posture of Prayer

Bend the knees in surrender
Of Your grace granted to me
Oh Lord, bless me the gift
To pray with humility

Let the hands come together
Symbol of our unity
To cradle the treasure of Spirit
Love binding You into me

Bless the back strong and straight
To shoulder the cross in my view
Rooted in our gift of faith
With courage to speak Your Word true

Lifting the head in hope
Allowing your light to shine through
Settings souls gaze on Your face
One of Your heavenly view

Close now the eyes into vision
Of wisdom for soul to see
That all is born of Your love
One of simplicity

Empty the heart of this beggar
With need of a wanting to share
Filling it full of compassion
With pure love beyond all compare

Tend now the soul of the needy
Rejoice in the blessings bestowed
Proclaiming the joy of Your kingdom
Sharing Your gifts overflowed
