O Silent Resurrecting Wind
whose Breath fills This tree
with Song and Dance and Life
O Peaceful Oceantide
who by hypnosis and soothing sway
creates the eternal shhhh!
O Gentle Rains who in the
Gentle Nights of pitter-patter
march to quench my Soul
O Silent, O Peaceful, O Gentle God
whose Life giving Presence thus made known
Sustain me in this Stormy Night
whose thief-wind comes to strip me bare.
Protect me from the Stormy Sea
whose crashing waves tear me 'part
and leave me 'lone against the shore.
Whose presence thus made known
by Anthony Borrow, S.J.
