For all your blessings

For all your blessings,
Jesus, we praise you,
gracious in mercy,
strong to console.
You to our need bring
comfort and healing,
love and forgiveness,
making us whole.

Daily around us,
pain and confusion
crumble our feeble
faith into dust.
Yet still we find your
love in the darkness,
changing our anxious
thoughts into trust.

We carry with us
into your presence
prisoners of sickness,
sadness, and fear;
grant them to know your
peace in their suffering
and new life flowing,
for you are near.

Grant us, your servants,
grace to work with you,
that in your loving
task we may share
mind's understanding,
hands skilled for healing,
hearts of compassion,
joined in love's care.
