St. Aidan's Prayer

by Theophilia

Leave me alone with God 
as much as may be.
As the tide draws the waters 
close in upon the shore,
Make me an island, set apart,
alone with you, God, 
holy to you.

Then with the turning of the tide
prepare me to carry your presence 
to the busy world beyond,
the world that rushes in on me
till the waters come again 
and fold me back to you.

- St. Aidan of Lindisfarne
