Blessed be God, whose mercy endures forever: let us give thanks, and remember all our blessings! Holy One, bend near, and fill our opened hearts with your mercy and love: purify our souls, that we may sing your wonders.
You are our solid rock, the cornerstone of our life: we put our trust in You, O God, and are not shaken. Settle us within the shadow of your wings: draw us within the embrace of the Holy, Lord Christ. Strengthen the weary and abide with the waiting, O Lord, that we may rejoice with the rising sun. Plant peace deep within our hearts, and make us blessings to all the world to your glory, we pray.
Blessed Jesus, illumine us with your mercy, and stretch over us the shade of your blessing as we pray.
