A Season’s Prayer To Saint Adelaide

Saint Adelaide

Saint Adelaide

Separated by a decade and millennium
And yet you persevere in times of grief and stress
Quietly walking among combatants in gloom
In your pious and reverent way seeking redress

Oh, tenacious handmaiden for peace and friendship
Oh, reconciler of enemies, balsam pure
Sailing with alms for the poor aboard the White Ship
Oh Empress of the Millennium, decency’s lure

Give us your Saint’s wisdom, kindness, and charity
To bear the burdens of modernity in stride
To withstand the wars of our human city
To cleanse and wash away the inequities wide

Oh Saint Adelaide, intervene for us, please
Breathe into the lungs of this world, the kiss of peace.
