When Hearts Are Willing; A Poem for Lent

by Hilary Horn

By John Birch —

When hearts are willing
but our minds distracted
by the world in which we move,
forgive us.

When our souls are thirsty
and we drink from water
that so easily runs dry
forgive us.

May we seek your face
in a world which passes you by,
may we hear your voice
in a world focussed on ‘I’,

may we know your mercy
and share it on our journey
this and every day.
