Where there is no vision

Where there is no vision, the people perish.

Where there is no prophecy, the people cast off restraint.

Without revelation, people run wild.

Without divine guidance, the people are scattered.

May we seek your guidance, O Wisdom Divine, as eagerly as the infant seeks the breast of nourishment.

Give us a yearning for your revelation, O Blessed One, as passionately as the thirsty seek water.

Give us ears itching for your prophetic Word, as ardently as the lover pines for the beloved’s voice.

Give us fearless eyes for uncompromised vision, amid the fog of war and marketing deceit.

Restore every voice silenced by weight of woe and threat of misery, that songs of joy outlast and outlive every grief-stricken aria.
