God Bless This City

God bless this city
and move our hearts with pity
lest we grow hard.

God bless this place
with silence, solitude and space
that we may pray.

God bless these days
of rough and narrow ways
lest we despair.

God bless the night
and calm the people’s fright
that we may love.

God bless this land
and guide us with your hand
lest we be unjust.

God bless this earth
through pangs of death and birth
and make us whole.


— In 2000 Years of Prayer
