Most Merciful God, we praise and bless You,
remembering your faithfulness and care for our souls.
Holy Spirit, abide within us,
and give us charity toward each other, as you love us.
You are our refuge,
You who uphold the stars as they tell their tales,
You who uphold us in life and in death.
Teach us to number our days as your holy gift,
that we may serve You and each other with joy, Lord Christ.
Bless and keep us, O Redeemer,
and place the seal of your gracious love upon those for whom we pray.
