I kneel before God naked
In my mind and thoughts
The piercing gaze of my maker
Seeing my true self
Even though I try hard
To obey God’s commandments
I am humbled by forgiveness
For transgressions that I make
I pray for insightfulness
To make the world around me
Better for myself and others
For the strength to forgive
Those who have wronged me
And the goodness of heart
To spread kindness and charity to all
For we are all God’s children
Deserving of love and friendship
Created in God’s image
We are one
