A CHRISTIAN INTER-FAITH PSALM
- God, why’s our life so complicated:
you’ve made other people so different from me?
- Yet we’ve all been seeking you for centuries:
the religious quest has occupied each generation.
- As Christians call to Jesus for help:
Muslims are calling on Allah and Hindus Om.
- While Christians try to keep your commandments:
Buddhist monks reverently remember their rules.
- When Christians discover their faith in history:
Jews keep Bible festivals and Sikhs revere the Gurus.
- We’re divided by common scriptures:
cultures of east and west keep us apart.
- Help us respect one another’s moral struggles:
give us the strength to support each other’s prayers.
- Strengthen our hearts to deepen our own devotions:
may you be our magnet and our wings for flight.
