Paint my life with an explosion of colours,
With beauty and hues of light.
For it has become dull and grey;
Infused with a sense that something is missing.
Colour my life with different shades:
With the sparkle of Spring
And the depth of Autumn; with the crispness
Of Winter and the sunshine of Summer.
For now it is the uncertainty of spring,
The brownness of autumn,
The iciness of winter
And the oppressive heat of summer.
Colour my life with Your perfect strokes.
Fill it with purpose and meaning,
With joy and peace,
So that I may become a bright light for You.
Paint me with the colours of Your love,
With the splendour of the tints of Your mercy.
Show me that this life is worth living,
That it can shine with the colours of You.
Colour this washed-out life
With the abundance of your hues,
With beauty and grace,
And with the vivid colours of the seasons.
