My Brother’s Keeper

Night prayer compline

Closes each lived day

Simeon’s words are uttered

He lived to see the day


Out of the depths we cry to you

Matins midday eve

The voice of prayer not silent

Our power when we believe


People of faith send up the prayer

For those who cannot pray

We are each other’s keepers

Do not look away


What people think a waste of time

Is life lived on full power

It is prayer that makes the world go round

Every hour its hour
