Mark me, o God

Ash Wednesday, 2013

 

Mark me as one

inclined toward life,

toward love and its deeper knowing.

 

Mark me as one

inclined toward love,

toward the company of compassion.

 

Mark me as one

inclined toward compassion,

toward the yes that flames boldly.

 

Mark me as one

inclined toward yes,

toward the difficult honor of your invitation.

 

Mark me as one

inclined toward mistakes,

toward the forgiveness that eases

the pinch in my own heart,

tired of holding too close the ache.

 

Mark me, O God, as I was in the beginning,

am now, and ever shall be:

 

Mark me, O God, as your own.
