Gracious God, the heart of truth,
source of all our knowing.
Here your sons and daughters seek
vision for our growing.

As we seek, you lead us to
quiet restful places,
showering your people with
all that love embraces.

Spirit from on high pour down.
Come: refresh the barren!
Make of us a fruitful field,
bursting with your passion.

Gracious God, the source of peace,
guide us in our searching.
You the destination still:
end of all our yearning.
