A Celtic prayer

The will of God be done by us;
The law of God be kept us;
Our evil will controlled by us;
Our sharp tongue checked by us;
Our sharp tongue checked by us;
Quick forgiveness offered by us;
Speedy repentance made by us;
Temptation sternly shunned by us;
Blessed death welcomed by us;
Angels' music heard by us;
God's highest praises sung by us.

This is rich, in the highest sense of the word. "Quick forgiveness" strikes me; God has been showing me what this really means, and it is powerful.

Yes, Cami, I am to often a bestower of "slow forgiveness" when I have been wronged ....
