心印


凡我们手所触摸之处
总会留下指印!
在墙上,在家具上,
在门柄上,在盘碟上,在书本上,
绝无例外。
凡我们所触摸之处,总留下的我们的身份。

主啊!今日无论我何往何处
请帮助我留下心印!
就是怜悯,体谅与爱的心印。

就是恩慈与关怀的心印。
愿我的心能够触摸一个孤单的邻居
或是一个出走的女儿
又或是一个焦虑的母亲
又或许是年迈的爷爷。

主,今日请差我前去
去留下心印。
若有人说:“我感觉到你的触摸,”
愿那人是透过我
感受到你的触摸。

HEARTPRINTS


Whatever our hands touch
We leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture
On doorknobs, dishes, books.
There’s no escape.
As we touch we leave our identity.

Oh God, wherever I go today
Help me leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion
Of understanding and love.

Heartprints of kindness
And genuine concern.
May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
Or a runaway daughter
Or an anxious mother
Or perhaps an aged grandfather.

Lord, send me out today
To leave heartprints.
And if someone should say,
“I felt your touch,”
May that one sense YOUR LOVE
Touching through ME.
