Hear our voice, O Lord, according to your faithful love.
Best of any song

The incarnate Word is with us,
—Wendell Berry. Given: new poems. Berkley: Counterpoint, 2005.
Almighty and eternal God, you made us of body, soul and spirit, that we live not by bread alone, but by every word that comes from you. We hunger for the spiritual food of your word. As we trust you for our daily bread, may we also trust you to give us day-by-day the inward nourishment of the living truth revealed to us in Jesus Christ.
Arvo Pärt. Spiegel im Spiegel (1978).
May God our Redeemer show us compassion and love. Amen.
