God who walks across the water,
reach out your hand
to the people of Nepal, of India
and of Bangladesh.
Come to them in food packets
and medical supplies,
and clean drinking water.
Come in helicopter and boat
and elephant rescues.
Come, in the hopes of rebuilding
after the loss of livestock,
the homes crushed under landslides.
Lift up those who sink in grief.
Walk with our feet; lift with our hands.
Come with our love, making peters of us all.
