"Maryrose's Cantcle" to Sophia, Holy Wisdom"

All praise and glory to you oh Sophia Wisdom.
You have removed the scales from my eyes
You opened my ears, my mind, and my heart

You formed me to be a companion to all who seek you
You stripped me of my prejudice.
You opened my mind and heart to all traditions

All praise and glory to you oh Sophia Wisdom.
You have removed the scales from my eyes
You opened my ears, my mind, and my heart

You introduced me to outrageous and courageous women
You stripped me of patriarchal views
You opened me to the potential for equity, inclusivity, and unity.

All praise and glory to you oh Sophia Wisdom.
You have removed the scales from my eyes
You opened my ears, my mind, and my heart

You gave me a welcoming community to worship with
You stripped me from the routine of liturgy
You opened me to the community’s wisdom

All praise and glory to you oh Sophia Wisdom.
You have removed the scales from my eyes
You opened my ears, my mind, and my heart
You revealed to me the need for all to celebrate/ritualize your work within us and our life-cycle moments
You stripped away my doubt, confusion and feelings of inadequacy
You opened my heart to new beginnings

All praise and glory to you oh Sophia Wisdom.
You have removed the scales from my eyes
You opened my ears, my mind, and my heart

I now stand naked before you oh Sophia
And I am ready for you to show me the path

All praise and glory to you oh Sophia Wisdom.
You have removed the scales from my eyes
You opened my ears, my mind, and my heart
