Lord, yesterday men came
to our apartment and washed the windows
We have glass sliding doors
and windows in the bedroom and study.
We thought the latter two were inaccessible,
but the men washed them anyway.
Now our view is unimpeded.
When the windows of my soul
become cloudy and need refurbishing,
wash me in the waters of regeneration, Lord,
that your Spirit may shine through me. Amen.
But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but according to his mercy, through the water of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
Hymn: Open My Eyes, That I May See
