Poem: Sabbath Prayer for Zane

Creator of all things,
You who hung the stars,
taught the sparrow how to sing,
and gilded the earth with color,
hear my prayer for one small boy.

Spirit of Creation and Light of the seas,
Angels, ancestors and all who ever loved,
Join hands and hearts, souls and songs
To heal his heart and make him whole.

Mary, who held the infant Jesus,

Place your arm about her shoulders.

Jesus.. lover, teacher, savior, friend,

surround him with your love.
