Finding Myself In Brethren
by Peter Menkin www.petermenkin.com
In Lent... (2000)

Where my self-forgetting Love
is hid, I know in my clinging to the Christ, in the cleft of the rock
I am unto you all hearts are open, no secrets hid.

I fathom on in my mortal
weakness seeking the heart
again to witness my faith
knowing you are all--
a Word.

New life is granted us, the me
of being in the following--
The master to the body that is
Him, incarnate, heavenly Church.
Forgive my wretched masks,
my deceptions, my strengths
of bone, pride, and many wishes.

Complete me in prayer, and as
A swift arrow, hear me, Lord.
My life; I come.
