May the anger of Christ be mine,
when the world grows hard and
when the rich have no care for the poor,
when the powerful
take from the needy.
In a world of restless change,
standing for love and faith and justice;
in a dark confusing time,
bearing the light, the
shining light of Christ.
May the pity of Christ be mine,
the outstretched hand's not taken,
when the needy stand in line,
when the lonely live forsaken. . . .
May the love of Christ be
for the anguished, for the ailing,
for the frail
for the fallen, for the failing. . . .
the actions of Christ be mine,
bringing hope, bringing new
bringing peace in a warring time,
not rejection. . . .
