Money talks and power makes the world go around,

or so they would have us believe;

And we, forgetting that other voice,

join the march in hopes that we may find a place

among the rich and strong.


But, you, O God, feel no shame,

fear no harm

as you walk among the poorest and weakest

feeling completely at home.


Thank you for the voice of your love

that keeps singing of the power in weakness,

the wealth in simplicity,

and the freedom and safety that is found

in walking your humble, serving way.
