Oh, Lord

Oh Lord, as I walk through my nights and my days
May I rest in your peaceful embrace
May I share with all beings
The gift of receiving and giving from our truest hearts
May my soul be enlightened
By your wandering lightening
And may I always walk by your side

Oh Lord, when I come to the end of my life
Oh Lord, when I close my eyes
May I wake to find the dreaming world
All aglow with your loving light
May I know you here
And may I know you there
And may I always walk by your side

Oh Lord, when the birdsong dies down into the ground
Lay me down, in peace, sweet relief
Will I be reunited with those I have wronged
Into Hades, at dawn, I do ride
Haven’t I earned your good graces
Being put through my paces?
Take my hand when the moon don’t light my way

Oh Lord, in the twilight of my deepest regret
I bow down to the East and the West
I set out, never knowing, the chances I’m taking
Chasing me down in the road
And to you I do thank you
And curse, and beg you
Take my hand when the moon don’t light my way
