O my Gardener, my Father Tend to me through the change of season How else will this green plant flourish through floods, fires, and frosts? I trust your wisdom: prune as needed Take away, that I may be more fruitful for you and my family (for I know you set the lonely in families) I trust your goodness: give me growth Provide, that I may be generous towards you and my neighbours (for I know you also tend to those who trouble me) I trust your power: plant me firmly Settle, that I may remain true to you and to my friends (for I know you give, as well as take away) You know the seasons that were the season that is and the seasons yet to be Through lengthening and shortening of days Through wax and wane of moon Clothe me in today's generosity (finer than Solomon’s dress) That I may serve you humbly and courageously Knowing always your great compassion Amen
