Let my eyes be for you a reflection of your soul:
see in them the compassion and love which is in you.
Let my ears hear your whispered fears
and, in hearing, keep you safe.
Let my voice comfort you and, in my words,
hear your own sweet solace mirrored there.
Let my arms enfold you, strong and sure,
and feel the encircling love of Christ holding you.
Let my heart be open to you
and, in that trembling vulnerability, hold us both secure.
