Service of the Sacred Heart

Lady Wisdom,
lead me beyond
this grotto of grief;
where the false foe
of separation taunts
like a thief in pursuit
of All I Know To Be True.

Lady Wisdom
cast that Glow
Which always
leads me back to You~

Back to the certain,
thirsty shore, and the sea
which never fails to bring
again and again, more and more,
the Living Water that makes me sing.

Back to the turning, trusted tide
Where I am yearning; fully alive,
and not tempted to hide from
the pull and pulse of passion.

Back to rock
and moss and hill;
Where The Word
on the wind enters in
and fills my lungs with Life,
and thrills my soul with a Knowing
that is Higher than the Highest Hope.

Sink my feet
back in the sod;
let me feel the rhythmic
Heartbeat of God,
here in my own breast.

O Lady of my Love’s unrest!
Lead me in the Way
that best honors these Gifts;
to me carefully entrusted.

Leave every corner
of this Temple, clear
and dusted of all limitation,
sadness and fear.

Give me eyes to see,
ears to hear, heart to bless,
arms to embrace, and soul to celebrate
Your Power, Beauty, and Grace!

Lady Wisdom,
lead me, I pray,
into my sweet Appointed Place;
Where strength is sure and supple
and Love is fulfilled in Pure, Perfect Joy.

Most Blessed Lady,
Thy Wisdom impart
as I walk in the Service
of the Sacred Heart.

  1. Blessed Lady Wisdom
    Blessed Mother of Peace
    Your children cry out in anguish and pain
    Your children cry out in grief and sorrow
    Your children cry out in frustration
    May the Spirit move boldly in our midst
    May the Spirit challenge us to truly be instruments of Peace
    Blessed Mother, may we take up the challenge
    The challenge to walk with your son, the Prince of Peace
