Lord Jesus, teach me to be generous;
Imagine a world where there is no more hunger nor poverty,
for we have the resources to end hunger and poverty.
teach me to serve you as you deserve,
Imagine people giving out of their fullness but also their emptiness
for if we dig deep enough into ourselves we will always have something to give.
to give and not to count the cost,
Imagine a world where there is no more inequality nor want,
for there are many people working and yearning to make this happen.
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
Imagine the world with no more wars nor conflict
for men have the capacity to live with one another in peace.
to toil and not to seek for rest,
Imagine the world where everyone shares in the blessings poured on us everyday
for we have more than enough talents and resources to make our world a paradise.
to labor and not to seek reward,
Imagine heaven on earth and hell is banished and vanished forever.
But there will always be tears and heartaches even as man seeks for perfection.
except that of knowing that I do your will.
