Almighty One, we bless your Holy Name: turn your face toward us as we bow before You! Let us sing praises to our God and Creator as long as there is breath in our bodies.
What are we that you should take notice of us? We are your beloved children, and we rest within your love. You have chosen us since before time: let us be as steadfast in our love for You as You are for us.
Therefore let us love one another as sisters and brothers of the Holy One, and be knit together in amity and peace. Consecrate us to your service, and let our hearts always be set upon You and your manifold gifts.
Give your angels charge over those who work, or watch, or weep this day, O Loving One, and pour out your blessings upon those we now name.
