Meditation : River And Sky


Move our hearts with the calm,

smooth flow of Your grace.

Let the river of Your love

run through our souls.

May my soul be carried

by the current of Your love,

toward the wide, infinite ocean of heaven.

Stretch out my heart with Your strength,

as You stretch out the sky above the earth.

Smooth out any wrinkles of hatred or resentment.

Enlarge my soul that it may know more fully

Your truth.

~Gilbert of Hoyland (d. 1172)
