If only…

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years;
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee;
And crown thy good
With brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

If only such lyrics rang true today. Certainly many tears flow this morning, and our prayers are for those students, faculty, staff and families of Virginia Tech.

Bless those who mourn, eternal God,
with the comfort of your love
that they may face each new day with hope
and the certainty that nothing can destroy
the good that has been given. May their memories become joyful,
their days enriched with friendship,
and their lives encircled by your love.
Amen.
–Vienna Cobb Anderson
