Make me a cloud at sunrise, Lord

Just as the sun arises

Let me be lifted high in prayer

To catch and reflect

The first rays of your glory

Help me to shine throughout this day

With the warming glow of your love

So that others might be able to see

Your splendor and majesty


Fill my heart with longing for you

Help my eyes hunger not to miss

A single glimpse of your beauty

Strewn in light across the sky


Fill me with your reflected glory

So that all around might see

The daily invitation of Christ’s love and peace

Shining and living in me.
