Lord, we have built a world of noise and agitation,
you wait for us in silence and peace. Bring us back.
Lord, we have built a world of privilege and misery,
You await us in communion. Bring us back, Lord.
Lord, we have built a world where so many peoples are oppressed,
you await us in respect and justice. Bring us back, Lord.
Lord, we have built a world on the law of the strongest and on exclusion,
you are waiting for us in the gratuitousness of love. Bring us back, Lord.
Lord, we have built a world of violence and contempt,
you are waiting for us in welcome and wonder. Bring us back, Lord.
