This Day

This day O God
On all my normal paths
I will seek your joy.
This day O God
In all the ordinary encounters
I will learn your love.
This day O God,
In the unassuming and the worn
I will hear of your mercy.
This day O God
Through the humdrum and the tiredness,
I will tell of your greatness.
You are in and around, close by and through.
All that I see and do, all that I am and have
Shares in your being and is vivid with your presence.
Open my eyes,
Open my ears,
Amaze my heart plainly and profoundly.
