Lent Ponderings - jasoncstanley.com

Mortal, can these bones live?

These bones that are dried up
    Done.
    Finished.
    Terminated.

These bones that are worn out
    Battered.
    Run-down.
    Falling apart.

Mortal, can these bones live?

These bones where hope has perished
    Crumbled.
    Succumbed.
    Disappeared.

These bones that love-less
    Forsaken.
    Abandoned.
    Rejected.

Mortal, can these bones live?

Breathe on us, O Breath of God.
Your breath is the life giving breath of
    Adam and Eve
    Abraham and Sarah
    Jacob and Rachel

Breathe on us, O Breath of God.
For You are the only one who can give life.
    Oxygen.
    Wind.
    Spirit.

Breathe on us, O Breath of god
And give these mortal bones life.
