Lord, send the new light of Your dawn
into my inner self.
Make shadows fade, pull back the blind,
let dazzling light cascade into every corner
of my mind.
Lord, send the new warmth of Your sun
into my heart, let me sense Your healing love,
like sun rising gently above sleepy land
on a misty morn to give me a fresh new start.
Lord, send the new fire of Your love into my being,
take away the chill, give new beginning, new purpose,
new thrill, fresh life, fresh hope.
Let me believe still You can give me the power
of Your healing love.
— By Columban Fr. Patrick Sayles
