Take Heed

TAKE HEED
words and music by Shellen Lubin

You may pray for answers
I long for the questions whose answers are unknown
You may pray for guidance
I crave the strength to not need to be shown

This is what I ask
What I believe I need
Courage for the task
Take heed

You may pray for comfort
I just hope my ankles can hold up for the climb
You may pray to get there
If I get there or not, just use well all my time

This is what I ask
What I believe I need
Courage for the task
Take heed

If I pray itís for a way we stay
On the tree of dispute
Able to discover
The limbs, the trunk, the root

Each free to speak and trust
Others listen, hear, adjust
While perching on their branch
No need for defense
No need for pretense
No need for an avalanche

You may pray for power
I strive for connection, understanding, empathy
In this foggy hour
Will you brave these uncharted roads with me?

This is what I ask
What I believe we need
Courage for the task
Take heed
