Teach Me to Pray, to Praise

Teach me G~d to pray


to praise

The splendor of ripe fruit

   the wonder of a wrinkled leaf

the freedom to see
to feel
to breath

   to know hope
      and even to know grief.

Teach my lips blessing
   and praise

when You renew Your time
   each night
   each dawn

so that my days will not repeat my yesterdays
to save my life from mere routine
   of all days gone.
