beloved prince of peace

Beloved Prince of Peace, born today in this world of ours, once long ago.

Born today in these hearts of ours, every time we express that spark of divine love, compassion, and kindness.

Remembered today as a hope, as a message of God's love, God's acceptance, God's compassion, God's grace; deep within the recesses of our ancient heart-memories.

Our dreams of peace and unity are quickened by these ancient heart-memories, by these illumined hopes, by the sweet embrace of love divine.

Prince of Peace kiss us sweetly upon the cheek today, help us remember the Great Hope that can never die but in hardened hearts.

Prince of Peace, keep our hearts supple. Fill them with Thy Holy Love. Let us each be a vehicle for your Holy Birth today.
