Help us to see with new eyes,
help us to hear with new ears,
help us to love with new hearts,
for we cannot do any of it on our own
We have come to the end,
but to see what?
All the sinfulness of others
and our life is only filled with strife and anger.
Something needs to change, I can tell.
Bring us back to the beginning again,
bring us back to our first love,
our first life.
Bring us back to Yourself.
We want to see the beauty of the cross.
We want to be called your bride.
Your hands were scarred for us,
yet all we seem to think about is ourselves.
Your side was pierced for us,
yet we think we deserve the world and everything in it.
Bring us back to the beginning again.
I want it to be no more me, jut YOU.
Bring us back to yourself, O Holy One,
and claim us as your bride.
