Creator of the Universe, how infinite
And astonishing are your worlds.
O Divine Imagination, you created a creator
When you imagined me into existence.
Breathe breath into so much dust.
Let me lament for forgetting daily
To rise up out of the clay.
Free me from the deceit of the mundane,
And from the lure of comfort
Which dulls all of my given edges.
Most of all, Light of my life,
Forgive my blindness, open all my eyes,
Salt me with newness and dreams.
Fire my soul with your inventive flame,
Let me be committed to the world by it,
And find in it the deepest joy.
Universal Creativity, flow through me,
Faith to see things not yet seen,
Hope to overflow broken cisterns,
And Love to free me forever.
Flow, Oh river, from the Holy Temple,
Through my mind to my hand.
Infuse my work with spirit,
To feed hungry souls.
