who holds our lives in your protecting hand!
We thank You for bringing us safely through the night,
giving your angels charge over our rest.
We remember before you our sins,
and ask your forgiveness, O Holy One.
Give us the wisdom and will
to restore the bonds of fellowship and love among us.
Lead us in ways of justice and peace,
and make us healers and reconcilers among all.
Lord Jesus, abide in our hearts,
and grant your peace to those we now name.
