My Prayer.

This prayer is actually Bono’s prayer but I don’t think that he will mind if I make it mine as well. Not that I know Bono that well really but given what I do know about him and the nature of prayer itself I am assuming it will be okay.

Yahweh.

Take these shoes; click clacking down some dead end street,
Take these shoes and make them fit.
Take this shirt: polyester, white trash, painted nowhere
Take this shirt and make it clean.
Take this soul; stranded in some skin and bones,
Take this soul and make it sing.

Yahweh, Yahweh,
Always pain before the child is born.
Yahweh, Yahweh,
Still I’m waiting for the dawn.

Take these hands; teach them what to carry,
Take these hands, don’t make a fist.
Take this mouth; so quick to criticise,
Take this mouth give it a kiss.

Yahweh, Yahweh,
Always pain before the child is born.
Yahweh, Yahweh,
Still I’m waiting for the dawn.
Still wating for the dawn.
The Sun is coming up
Sun is coming up in the ocean.
His love is like a drop in the ocean.
Yahweh, Yahweh,
Always pain before the child is born.
Yahweh, tell me now,
Why the dark before the dawn

Take this city, a city should be shining on a hill
Take this city if it be your will.
What no man can own, no man can take.
Take this heart, take this heart,
take this heart and make it break
