A Blessing of the Wounds (#metoo)


Bless, O bless these wounds, God, the healer. Fresh wounds, still bleeding. Tender hearts, tender spirits. An innocent crossing the path of violence. Bless, O bless these wounds.


Bless, O bless these wounds, God, the comforter. Old wounds, healed over, But suddenly reopened, Tender hearts, tender spirits. Wounds inflicted by stories in the news. Bless, O bless these wounds.


Bless, O bless these wounds, God of tenderheartedness. Hidden wounds, forgotten, never known, Tear through the layers of memory. Wounds, long buried, rise to the surface. Bless, O bless these wounds.


Bless, O bless these wounds, God, of justice. And bless those bearing these wounds: Victim or survivor, Angry prophet or weeping child, Tender hearts and tender spirits. Bless, O bless these wounds.
