"Wordless May" as written by Anthony J. Miracle, Clifford A. Kubin and Annette Marie Strean....
The words of wordless may
Sing a song to me
She stands as tall as trees these days
The words of wordless may

Dear Jesus make me simple
Strong as trees to sway
Give me arms wide open, with your beautiful way
Just like wordless may

If there were fields, as pretty as you
I'd want to kiss them too
If there were fields, as pretty as you
I'd want to kiss them too

If there were eyes, as pretty and blue
I'd want to swim them too
If there were skys, as pretty and blue
I'd want to kiss them too

The words of wordless may
Sing a song to me
She stands as tall as trees these days
The words of wordless may

Dear Jesus make me simple
Strong as trees to sway
Give me arms wide open, with your beautiful way
Just like wordless may

If there were fields, as pretty as you
I'd want to kiss them too
If there were skys, as pretty as you
I'd want to kiss them too

Music

The words of wordless may
Sing a song to me
She stands as tall as trees these days
The words of wordless may

Dear Jesus make me simple
Strong as trees to sway
Give me arms wide open, with your beautiful way
Just like wordless may

    General CommentThe two lines that really jump out at me are "Dear Jesus, make me simple / strong as trees to sway."

    I often feel that various factors, not the least of which being my own mind, conspire to complicate my life and, more specifically, the way I respond to situations. And while introspection and thoughtfulness are important, one can outthink oneself. As T.S. Eliot said, "In a minute there is time for decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse."

    There is a time and place for simplicity. What kind? The line invokes Jesus's help, and Jesus's was, essentially, a simple message about how to treat people. The line reminds me that while analysis is important, one should not argue oneself out of a position that one simply knows deep down to be right.

    The line "strong as trees to sway" reminds us that often strength is not about monolithic rigidity, but a capacity to compromise. And just as trees bend in the wind, thereby remaining unbroken, so should people realize that in difficult situations, it is an ability to adapt rather than a refusal to change that permits them to survive.
