Mother God

Mother God
Giver of peace
Bringer of comfort
We find solace in your embrace
Your kiss of love heals
Our cuts and bruises
The warm aroma of bread of life
You baked and kneaded
Fills the air
You bore us in your womb
You gave birth to our selfhood and faith
You raised us up in justice and kindness
Admonishing us when our hearts went astray
Calling us home with your dinner bell of grace
And embracing us in love as we ran to your arms
Mother God, we are thankful.
Accept these our thanks.
