the weight of your moral certitude;
set us an example in tolerance,
in the noble art of rising above;
instruct us how to love one another
as you have loved, as He has loved you;
teach us the lessons of physical restraint,
show us the stones in your pocket, unthrown;
Peacemakers, merciful, meek and pure
show us why the rewards of righteousness are yours.
