Prayer of St Aidan

 Leave me alone with God as much as may be,

As the tide draws the waters close in on 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.
