Special remembrance Service for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.1

O leader supreme, Martin Luther King,
You are at once the liberation
Of your black brothers and sisters
And the illumination Of your white brothers and sisters.
We, who are your universal Brothers and Sisters,
Are invoking your blessingful presence
To guide us and lead us
To our supreme Destination —-
The Golden Shore Of the ever-transcending Beyond
Which is flooded with Light and Delight
In the heart-home of newness,
Oneness and fulness.
