All but you

         Blessed are the poor in spirit,
                  for theirs is the realm of heaven.
         Blessed are those who mourn,
                  for they will be comforted.
         Blessed are the gentle,
                  for they will inherit the earth.
         Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
                  for they will be filled.
                             —
Matthew 5.3-6   

God, I let go of all but you.
         Help me let go of all but you.

I trust your grace alone,
         not wealth, power or happiness,
to give me life, to hold me with love,
          to bless me.

I let go of all but you.
         Help me let go of all but you.

Give me grace to trust you,
         deeply, freely, wholly.

Give me eyes to see your blessing
         that stands like a rock
         in the winds of circumstance, that pours like sunlight
         no matter my deserving.

I let go of all but you.
         Help me let go of all but you.
