Words (by Peter Casey)

Now they are taken, the blood and the body,
Reminders of dying, the symbols of pain,
The grief in the mind and the flesh torn and bleeding,
The trial and betrayal, a life that seems vain.

Now they are taken, transformed by your dying
Into the symbols of life without end
Into the symbols of your life within us,
Your love and your courage, yourself as our friend.

May you within me be part of my body,
Blood of my blood, Lord, and bone of my bone,
Your death and your life in my speech and my actions,
Your kingdom revealed in my work and my home.
