O holy God gentle is your love and charity for all of your children
For you are ready to speak through your heart to those who are in need
For God forgives sinners and understands human frailty
God help me not be afraid of the changes that will take place in my life
And to realize that by dealing with them, I will grow in faith
For through God's healing and loving touch from God's heart to mine
And through God's loving spirit, will give me union with Jesus
