Let us now praise our God: Earth-Maker, Pain-Bearer, Life-Giver, Ground of Being and Source of Beauty.
Come, Light of the World, and fill our hearts with fire to being victory to the oppressed and comfort to the fearful.
Let us sing hope before the forces of despair, and breathe your love into the frozen air of division.
You have taught us to walk in the ways of the Holy One: now let us arise and set our hearts to work with joy.
Place the mantle of your solace and the balm of your healing on all who cry out for help, O God of Power and Mercy.
You know what is written in our hearts, O Holy One: place your blessing upon all whom we now remember before You, we pray.
