God of our life,
there are days when the burdens we carry
chafe our shoulders
and weigh us down...
when the road seams dreary and endless,
the skies grey and threatening;
when our lives have no music in them
and our hearts are lonely,
and our souls have lost their courage.
Flood the path with light! we beseech Thee,
turn our eyes to where the skies are full of promise;
tune our hearts to brave music;
give us the sense of comradeship
with heroes and saints
and the common folk of every age
and of our own time;
and so quicken our spirit that we may be able
to encourage the souls of all
who journey with us on the road of life,
to Thy honor and glory.
