In a spirit of faith

With a shout, I claim it:
God's joy is mine!
Today my troubles are over
and the peace of God is here.
Blessed be the Spirit that announces:
"This is the day that the LORD has made";
let my soul rejoice and be glad!
Let me cast off my mourning
and my whining
and my anxious fretting
to celebrate God's faithfulness
already arrived,
not still to come.
So in a spirit of faith, I claim:
justice arrived!
reconciliations made!
hospitality extended!
love unparalleled!
lives renewed!
My God, my Joy, my Daily Bread:
your goodness is not only my claim
but also my life and my call.
May I so live
today.
Today!
