Meet Me, Lord Jesus

In the rising of the sun at dawn,
and as the sunset fades,
meet me, Lord Jesus;
in the hard decisions of the moment,
meet me, Lord Jesus;
on a well-lit, road, in a time of plenty,
meet me, Lord Jesus;
on a stony path, in a time of need,
meet me, Lord Jesus;
in the faces of friends,
and in the hands of strangers,
meet me, Lord Jesus;
in my setting out, and in my coming home,
meet me, Lord Jesus.

As for expressing gratitude to God: God doesn’t need our thanks, But we need to thank God. It reminds us that everything we have we owe to him. We can truly call ourselves grateful people only when we can say thanks for everything that has brought us to this moment. This kind of gratitude enables us to reclaim our whole past, and to see it as the concrete way in which God has led us to this moment.
Pray for Michael Galvin, Leamerlea; Michael Murphy, Strand Street; Máirín Boland, Cill Mhic an Domhnaigh; William and Daniel McCarthy, Bluebell, Dublin and late of Glens; Margaret Moriarty, (nee Flahive), Cahiracruttera, Inch.
