Amen.

Oh God of commandments too clear to question
Commandments that usher us into your presence
If we listen

May the words of our mouths
And the meditations of our hearts*
Be transformed in your sight

Indicative of our eyes fixed on you
Our relationships led by you
Our lives surrendered to you

Oh God our rock
And our redeemer
Amen.

 

Written as a response to Matthew 15:1-20.
*Psalm 19:14
