As I ascend this stair
I pray for all who are in despair.

All who have been betrayed
All who are dismayed
All who are distressed
All who feel depressed
All ill and in pain
All who are driven insane
All whose hope has flown
All who are alone
All homeless on the street
All who with danger meet.

Lord, who came down to share our plight,
Lift them into your love and light.
