New Heavens and a New Earth
I can imagine a world of peace.
No more war or violence.
No more dissension or division.
No more fear or despair.
I can imagine a world of hope.
Generous hands serving one another
making sure all people's needs are met.
No more hunger or homelessness.
No more greed or need.
I can imagine a world of harmony.
People working together for good,
for care for all people,
for the nurturing of creation.
I can imagine a world of faith,
where anything is possible
and all people work together to make the impossible happen.
I can imagine a New Heaven and a New Earth
filled with peace, hope, faith, and abiding love.
I can imagine a world permeated through and through with Love.
Lord, help us to make your New Heaven and New Earth a reality.
Expand our hearts.
Open our hands.
Guide our feet.
May we cooperate with your dream for our world
and cultivate peace, hope, faith, and love
to bring about your New Heaven and New Earth.
