Preserve, O Lord

Preserve in your people, O Lord,
 beauty and truth,
Love light that proceeds
only from you,
literature and music
 that so enriches
all our lives
with standing ovation,
Lest we descend,
slip and fall
into beaten drums
of drunken darkness,
gnawing our knuckles
and sleeping with the beasts.
