Disturb Us, O Lord

Disturb us, o Lord,
When we are too well pleased with ourselves;
When our dreams have come true because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, o Lord,
When with the abundance of things we possess,
We have lost our thirst for the water of Life,
When, having fallen in love with time,
We have ceased to dream Eternity;
And in our efforts to build a new Earth;
We have allowed our version for the New Heaven to grow dim.

Stir us, o Lord,
To dare more boldly, to venture more seas,
Where storms shall show your mastery,
Where losing sight of land
We shall find the stars.

In the name of Him who pushed back the horizons of our hopes and invited the brave to follow Him.
Amen.
