From greed, from vanity,
from despair, from doubt,
come away, o my soul.
Arise and come away.

From apathy, from anger,
from mistrust, from fear,
come away, o my soul.
Arise and come away.

Breathe in love, breathe out peace.
Notice life as it touches your skin.
Arise and come away, o my soul —
there are a thousand deaths, but come to life.

Rejoice in every balm that soothes;
savor the fragrance of every bloom.
Arise and come away, o my soul.
Leave disappointment and come to joy.

Remember your robe of grace.
Burn every mercenary disguise.
Arise and come away, o my soul,
to that holy hill where armor is shed.

To beauty, to generosity,
to well-being, to hope,
come away, o my soul.
Arise and come away.
