One: We stand before the Holy One
All: Sometimes awe-struck, sometimes mystified
One: We hear a voice calling our names
All: Sometimes we are scared. Sometimes we are comforted.
One: Today we ask that our fears be quelled, our minds be sharpened, our ears ready to listen, and our hearts opened to the One who has nothing but love for us.
All: Holy One, intervene as needed. Enliven us and inspire us. We are here for You.
