Our Family Tree (A Prayer for Renewal)

lone tree

Being one, yet leaves of plenty
This tree is alive; but lives in dryness
Oh! Rain down Your blessings
Blessings abundant
Waters of hope and perfected healing
Raindrops of grace, Your mercy, reviving
Lord please lift this tree
From the plains so lifeless
Within no compassion, no hope, only powerless
And plant it beside still waters of loveliness
Feed it, support it, protect it
Don’t abandon it
Dullness to brilliance, emptiness to fullness
Old to new
No longer crushed but living in pureness
And the leaves that were falling
Lost in unrelenting winds of deception
Now can feed others, a family renewed
A family forgiven
The love of a family

(in “Fragrance from the Spring”)
