Prayer for April 1

I pray you'll be our eyes and watch us where we go
And help us to be wise in times when we don't know
Let this be our prayer 
When we lose our way
Lead us to a place 
Guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe

La luce che tu hai
(I pray we'll find your light)
Nel cuore resterà
(And hold it in our hearts)
A ricordarci che
(When stars go out each night)
Eterna stella sei
Nella mia preghiera
(Let this be our prayer)
Quanta fede c'è
(When shadows fill our day)

Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe
Sogniamo un mondo senza più violenza
Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace, di fraternità
La forza che ci dà

(We ask that life be kind)
È il desiderio che
(And watch us from above)
Ognuno trovi amor
(We hope each soul will find)
Intorno e dentro sé
(Another soul to love)

Let this be our prayer 
Let this be our prayer
Just like every child
Just like every child
Need to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe
È la fede che
Hai acceso in noi
Sento che ci salverà

When you go out and see the empty streets, 

the empty stadiums, the empty train platforms, 

don’t say to yourself, “It looks like the end of the world.”  


What you’re seeing is love in action.  

What you’re seeing, in that negative space, 

is how much we do care for each other, 

for our grandparents,

for our immuno-compromised brothers and sisters, 

for people we will never meet.


People will lose jobs over this.  

Some will lose their businesses.

And some will lose their lives.  

All the more reason to take a moment, 

when you’re out on your walk, 

or on your way to the store, 

or just watching the news, 

to look into the emptiness and marvel at all that LOVE.


Let it fill you and sustain you.


It is the most remarkable act of global solidarity we may ever witness!

When This Is All Over

When this is all over,

And sanity’s restored,

Don’t take life for granted,

As we did before


When this is all over,

The clouds will all clear,

Take hold of your loved ones,

Hug and hold them near.


When this is all over,

We’ll hear the birds sing,

Listen to their melodies,

The joy that they bring


When this is all over,

And children can play,

Let them wild and free,

To make up for lost days.


When this is all over,

Remember the brave,

Who wore scrubs and gowns

And the countless they saved.
