Womb of All

In the midst of a failing world,
You draw us into community with You,
And one another.
Contain us with the faithfulness
Of your motherly-compassion.
That, nurtured by your care,
We mother all who are in need
Of groundedness in You.
Birth-giver of the earth and skies
And all that is,
You are the one Divinity, now and forever,
