LORD, I COMMEND

LORD, I COMMEND ALL MY DAYS,
ALL MY NIGHTS,
ALL MY PAIN.
YOU WHO ARE LORD, REDEEM.

LORD, I COMMEND ALL MY HOPES,
ALL MY DREAMS,
ALL MY FEARS.
YOU WHO ARE LORD, REDEEM.

LORD, I COMMEND ALL MY JOY,
ALL MY PEACE,
ALL MY TEARS.
YOU WHO ARE LORD, REDEEM.

LORD, I COMMEND ALL MY LIFE,
ALL MY BREATH,
ALL MY LOVE.

MOTHER IS

MOTHER IS

Quietly
she endures all trials,
in simplicity
does she labor,
with unreserved affection
embraces her world --
babes caressed to sleep;
watchtower to the infirmed

Courageously
she dances through life,
elegant,
never-ending in the finer grace
of love

Fountain of the earth,
womb of life,
good, noble,
pure and at peace

mother is
Beauty Personified.


c. 1983 Fred J. Scheyd

THOUGH

Though you do not see me,
I am with you.

Though you do not hear me,
I speak to you.

Though you do not feel me,
I embrace you.
