The risen, living Christ

Calls me by my name;

Comes to the loneliness within me;

Heals that which is wounded in me;

Comforts that which grieves in me;

Seeks for that which is lost within me;

Releases me from that which has dominion over me;

Cleanses me of that which does not belong to me;

Renews that which feels drained within me;

Awakens that which is asleep in me;

Names that which is formless within me;

Empowers that which is newborn within me;

Consecrates and guides that which is strong within me;

Restores me to this world which needs me;

Reaches out in endless love to others through me.
