You are the peace of all things calm
You are the place to hide from harm
You are the light that shines in the dark
You are the heart’s eternal spark
You are the door that’s open wide
You are the guest who waits inside
You are the stranger at the door
You are the calling of the poor
You are my Lord and with me still
You are my love, keep me from ill
You are the light, the truth, the way,
You are my Savior this very day.
A prayer of the first millennium, from Essential Celtic Prayers, a book my husband Phil Fox Rose made.
