May God Bless You
May God bless you with discomfort, At easy answers, half-truths, And superficial relationships So that you may live Deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger At injustice, oppression, And exploitation of people, So that you may work for Justice, freedom and peace.
May God bless you with tears, To shed for those who suffer pain, Rejection, hunger, and war So that you may reach out your hand To comfort them and To turn their pain to joy
And may God bless you With enough foolishness To believe that you can Make a difference in the world, So that you can do What others claim cannot be done To bring justice and kindness To all our children and the poor.
