A Psalm Of Life

Poem By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Healing God Creator of all good
You yourself saw that all you made was good, whole, beautiful and healthy.
You said with words of wonder, 'look all that I have made is good! '
Because of your goodness, just because of that for no other reason
Maybe love, yes of course because you love -
You want to heal, you want to save, you want to help.
Please heal what is wrong, restore what is hidden, rebuild what is broken
this nation, this country, this world, this body of all humankind -
The suffering, the ailing, paining the hurtiing, everything invisible
Forces that bind, free the blind, lend your ear to the deafened
reveal your compassion, your mercy, your love
In a world that is dying.
No on else can now but you, Lord Creator, Father Life, Father Love,
Thank you my healing God.

Let me review the scene,
And summon from the shadowy Past
The forms that once have been.

The Arrow And The Song

It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

Autumn

Thou comest, Autumn, heralded by the rain,
With banners, by great gales incessant fanned,
Brighter than brightest silks of Samarcand,
And stately oxen harnessed to thy wain!

Arsenal At Springfield, The

This is the Arsenal. From floor to ceiling,
Like a huge organ, rise the burnished arms;
But front their silent pipes no anthem pealing
Startles the villages with strange alarms.

A Song Of Savoy

As the dim twilight shrouds
The mountain's purple crest,
And Summer's white and folded clouds
