Devotional Desires


Tune: Repton

('Dear Lord and Father of mankind')

Part of Syrian Clementine Liturgy Prayer


Make us children of quietness

With us your graces bless

And heirs of peace, make strife to cease

Your healing balm in us release

Your life in us increase

Your life in us increase


Enkindle in us the fire bright

Illumined by your light

May we be, and too in us sow

Your concern, that we it may know

In your will and ways grow

In your will and ways grow


Strengthen our weakness by your power

Which we need every hour

And bind us closely unto you

And to each other, us renew

In unity's bond too

In unity's bond too

  • Comment from author about the poem: A hymn-poem in format. 'Part 2' of a Clemetine Prayer. 'Part 1' was a few days ago, though it's all one prayer in fact. I discovered these extra lines to it. It overlaps in a couple of places with 'Part 1'.
