May you who are restless

Find rest

And in rest, restoration

And the healing

Of your hollow soul

May peace be yours

May you who are frozen

Find freedom

And in freedom the faith

To face the fire

And the thawing

Of your ice-gripped heart

May peace be yours

May you who are conflicted

Find convergence

And in convergence

Confidence

To be the one new child

Of your old divided self

May peace be yours

May you who are tense

Find tenderness

And in tenderness the tendency

To kindness

And the creativity

Of a caring character

May peace be yours

And you who are Godless

May you find God

And in God,

The grace and growth you need

For fruit and fullness

And the love that will last you

Through the long-haul

Of a lived-for-others life

May peace be yours.
