I Ask Only This

Grant me peace — I surrender

Let me not close my eyes due to this

Grant me Peace as I surrender

Grant me vision to see what is true

Let my salvation not be hindered


Lead me away from the darkness

Where I stumble about like a beggar

Where fear and hate rule the day

Where I would but attack my brother


Lead me forth to your blessed light

A peaceful land of milk and honey

Bring me over the rivers of tears

those of sorrow and despair that fill the lonely


Bring my soul to that holiest place

where self meets Self, where strength unites

where my weakness fades from view

where darkness leaves, replaced by sight


Let me not close my eyes due to this

Grant me Peace-I have surrendered

I only want to know what is true

I am loved — I have remembered
