The Amended Our Father

The Amended Our Father

Our Father, born of divine essence
Majestic is thy throne
You are the source of all things divine
Thy kingdom is infinite and pure

Your being is incomprehensible
We stand humbled by your magnificence
Let our earthly flesh pay homage to your craft
Let our spirit one day shine in your great light

Lord let our journey be guarded by your love
Lead all to discover the power of your glory
Forgive us our human failings, and
Temper our compassion with a gentle patience

Lord we are tempted creatures
Freed by your gracious gift of will
Awaken us, to our spiritual journey, and
Bestow pity on our wreck-less souls.

Joseph Pede
