Awaken, companions, for light arises in the East, and the long shades of night shatter before a song of praise to God!
Come, Lord Jesus: extend your arms around us, and receive our prayers and praises. Bring us to such an awareness of your mercies, O God, that we mend our lives and our intentions, and turn to your light. Let our lives sing out a song of mercy and grace, and our feet walk in paths of integrity and healing.
Holy One, fill us with your Spirit of Truth and Wisdom, and send your angels to tend to those who seek You. Resting upon the faithful love of God, we lay our cares and our blessings before You, Lord, as we pray.
