GO WITH ME IN A NEW EXODUS

This is a poem of Ted Loder in Guerrillas of Grace

O God of fire and freedom,
deliver me from my bondage
to what can be counted
and go with me in a new exodus
toward what counts,
but can only be measured
in bread shared
and swords become plowshares;
in bodies healed
and minds liberated;
in songs sung
and justice done;
in laughter in the night
and joy in the morning;
in love through all seasons
and great gladness of heart;
in all people coming together
and a kingdom coming in glory;
in you name being praised
and my becoming an alleluia,
through Jesus the Christ.
Amen.
