Lamp Post

Make me a lamp post of the light
Make me a holy vessel
Give me unadulterated sight
Give me the strength to lay down my life
And the grace to do what is right

Even when it hurts
Even when it burdens me
Even if I bleed
Let not my integrity be left by me
Even when it hurts

Give me a love that never fails
This kinds of holy resolve
Make me so hopeful that I tell
Incessantly of the coming day when tribulations pass away

Even when it hurts
Even when it burdens me
Even if I bleed
Let not my integrity be left by me
Even when it hurts

And then the Earth, common to all
Not parted out with walls
Shall then bring forth of her own
Much fruit and life and wealth
For there shall be
No poor, no rich, nor tyrant nor slave
None great, nor small any longer
No kings, no princes
For all men shall be
Together in harmony
Honouring all living things
Together in harmony
