The word of God is living and active,
sharper than any two-edged sword,
piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow;
it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Before God no creature is hidden, but all are naked
and laid bare to the eyes of the one
to whom we must render an account.
your Word of love flows through me
like light through glass,
as sound fills silence.
Nothing is secret to you,
with your eyes as small as light,
nothing vague or mistaken.
Look between my soul and marrow;
light the cracks between
what is and is not.
Open my soul like a flower in your morning:
petals uncurl and become intense
with your presence.
Pierce my darkness,
take your scalpel to the lies I hold
Shine your life-giving truth
from within me, every thought, every cell.
Shine in me and make me
transparent to your grace,
mottled as I am,
transparent to your grace.
