Our father who art not in heaven, but in some
core of human being, closer than consciousness,
hallowed be thy name, for it is: love. Thy
kingdom is here, in all moments of true striving.
May thy will be done in our lives, more and
Do not give us our daily bread,
but let us strive for it, and so
savor it. Lead us into temptation, so that we
will bruise or break ourselves upon it, earning
humanity. Do not deliver us from
evil, for without evil, how can we know good?
Help us to forgive ourselves, so that we can
learn love, to pass it on.
May thy kingdom be the
spirit of man. Thou—his power. Thine—the glory
he will sing forever to his newly born.
