Music of Love

"God is love and he who abides in love abides
in God, and God in him." 1 John 4:16


You, Father,
Your Son, Jesus,
Your Spirit, Holy,
Like music 
 Live in harmony, unified.

Like well-tuned cords,
Ordered well to each other,
Side by side,
Play the music of love.

Your rich tones
Hymn a peace,
Enchant with a quiet

Your rhythm of friendship --
A balm to grief,
A joy to delight joy.

A music  sung to all,
Embraces all,
No bans.

I pray to listen to Your Song,
Be at home with Your Music,
And abide in love.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
