A Prayer for our Troubled Time

Heal me, O Lord
  And I shall be healed

Save me, O Lord
  And I shall be saved

My heart is wicked
  Who would know it

You, O Lord, would know
  You, who search men's hearts

And find Righteousness or
  Iniquity therein

You are my praise, O Lord
  You, and not the physician

You, and not the medication
  You, and You alone, can heal me

May the words of my mouth
  And the meditations of my heart

Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord
  My soul be as humble as the dust of the Earth
