Before me in the planned shape of this day
I look for unexpected surgings of new life.
Around me in the people whom I know and love
I look for unopened gifts of promise.
Within me in the familiar sanctuary of my own soul
I look for shinings of the everlasting light.
Before me, around me, within me
I look for your life-giving mystery, O God,
before me, around me, within me.
