God's mercy is everlasting!
You welcome us into Your embrace, O God,
and there we take our rest and find new strength.
You number the stars and comfort our sorrows,
knowing us all by name.
You teach the sparrow its song and fill our hearts with thanksgiving;
all creation sings its praise of Your goodness.
Let us abide with You in this moment, O Loving One:
Your love envelops us now and forever.
