You beckon us to wake from our sleep,
to open our eyes to the goodness of your reign,
the injustice of our world, and the gap in between.
You call us to follow in the path of your love.
Forgive us, O God, when we choose the easy way.
Forgive us, O God, when we choose the selfish way, the fast way,
the successful way, the nice way,
the friendly way, the comfortable way.
Convict us, awaken us, empower us, and enliven us
to follow the Way of justice and love.
