On the Eve of Obama's Inauguration

O God,
known by many names
and by no single name known-
Accompany us as we strive to
repair, rebuild, reconcile, reunite.
Our salvation lies not without,
but within;
The promise of resurrection
rests in our self-anointing.
As the winds of history
propel us into unknown lands,
help us,
Great God,
to revel in this mystery.
Empower us
to be the change
that love demands.
