Teach Me to Sing

Voice of Heaven,

Words become thoughts,
thoughts, beliefs,
and beliefs, actions;
and that which I
once merely heard
is soon that which I am.

So, help me ignore
the voices that inspire
hatred and misery,
distress and malice,
selfishness and fear,

May I again hear the
words of love and joy,
peace and kindness,
generosity and hope;

And by hearing,
learn to speak,
and by speaking,
learn to sing with the
Father, Son, and Spirit.

Three distinct voices,
in one beautiful song.
