Lover of Us All

Lover of Us All
By Chris Glaser

Holy Trinity,
divine and blessed relationship,
bless the ecstasy of these lovers
as their faces kiss,
as their bodies touch,
as in their love making
they overcome the fear and the hatred
and the garbage heaped upon them
by the church and the society.

Holy Trinity,
bless their adoration of one another
as they worship the holy
of your divine imprint
and celebrate communion
of a loving covenant.
May such sacrament
bring them ever closer to you,
Lover of us all.
