“Today I Awake” by John Bell with the Cathedral Singers

#SelfCareSaturday    Remember to pray for yourself, too.

“Today I Awake”

Today I awake and God is before me.

At night, as I dreamt, God summoned the day;

For God never sleeps but patterns the morning

with slithers of gold or glory in grey.

Today I arise and Christ is beside me.

He walked through the dark to scatter new light,

Yes, Christ is alive, and beckons his people

to hope and to heal, resist and invite.

Today I affirm the Spirit within me

at worship and work, in struggle and rest.

The Spirit inspires all life which is changing

from fearing to faith, from broken to blest.

Today I enjoy the Trinity round me,

above and beneath, before and behind;

The Maker, the Son, the Spirit together

they called me to life and call me their friend.
