 Hi Friends!

Thanks for listening this morning.  Chances are, if you were up THIS early on a holiday, you were working.   And if you WERE working, I played a couple of special songs for you, including Jon Dakota's "What Am I Working For?" and that old Irish favorite, done up cute by Anne Feeney, called "The Sick Note."  But the most specialest one of all is a favorite of mine by Suzzy and Maggie Roche.  It's a warm and lovely prayer for all of us who trod off to the factory, the office, the clinic, the woods, the construction site and earn a buck with no hoopla and hurrah.  It's called "For Those Whose Work is Invisible."  Here.  Read the lyrics.  And have a relaxing Labor Day...


Diane Hunt

for those whose work is invisible

words by Mary Gordon
music by Suzzy

For those who paint the undersides of boats, makers of ornamental drains on roofs too high to be seen; for cobblers who labor over inner soles; for seamstresses who stitch the wrong sides of linings; for scholars whose research leads to no obvious discovery; for dentists who polish each gold surface of the fillings of upper molars; for sewer engineers and those who repair water mains; for electricians; for artists who suppress what does injustice to their visions; for surgeons whose sutures are things of beauty. For all those whose work is for Your eye only, who labor for Your entertainment or their own, who sleep in peace or do not sleep in peace, knowing that their effects are unknown.

Protect them from downheartedness and from diseases of the eye.

Grant them perseverance, for the sake of Your love which is humble, invisible and heedless of reward.
