Come Close to Me

Lord, You touched the suffering
when others kept their distance,
to make them whole again.

Touch me now with Your healing love,
make me whole again.

Lord, You wished to comfort those heavy
and overburdened with cares,
so they could find rest for their souls.

Comfort me now, to lighten my cares,
help me to feel precious in Your sight.

Lord, come close to me, touch me.

Amen.

-By Columban Fr. Patrick Sayles
