Severance Prayer

pr
Severance Prayer
by David Rutter
O’ God
O’ fickle, capricious God
Unbind my hands
Unbind my tongue
Let me be severe
Allow me to slice away the fat
Of cheap and cowardly cleverness
Let me be severe
Let me be
As misguided
As wrong
As I need to be
Whether or not
You are ready
To hear it
O’ God
O’ dull and listless God
Unleash my wit
Unblock my bile
Let me be severe
Allow me to separate the sturdy wheat
From the facile chaff
Let me be severe
Let me embrace my dakness
That I may
Spew forth
Light
Whether or not
You are ready
To see it
Amen
