|The ceiling of La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona.|
we welcome You into our hearts,
that we be led by your Spirit into praise.
Fill us with the mercy and love of Christ,
that we may reveal your love in the world.
As this day unwinds in its skein of hours,
knit us together in love and hope,
united by fellowship and peace.
Give us forgiving hearts and compassionate hands
that we may seek out the lost and the hurting.
Lord Jesus, spread your blessing like an awning
over these beloveds for whom we pray.
