Hold the world

Hold the world 

In kindess,

bound for every human creature. 

Hold the world in safety 

for the hurting and frightened.

Hold the world for just a moment 
so that we might catch our breath.

Hold the world

with strong hands 

so that ours might slightly soften. 

Hold the world 

and its sorrows too

so that we might dry our tears.

Hold the world 

and all of its joys 

so that we might smile together.  

In all of this I hold the world

gratefully and tender.

Come join with me

Let’s hold the world 

and bless it all,
