Of All The Spirits Gifts To Me

Of all the Spirit’s gifts to me,
I pray that I may never cease
to take and treasure most these three:
love, joy, and peace.

The Spirit shows me love’s the root
of every gift sent from above,
of every flower, of every fruit,
that God is love.

The Spirit shows if I possess
a love no evil can destroy;
however great is my distress,
then this is joy.

Though what’s ahead is mystery,
and life itself is ours on lease,
each day the Spirit says to me,
“Go forth in peace!”

We go in peace, but made aware that,
in a needy world like this,
our clearest purpose is to share
love, joy, and peace.
