who has kept us safe throughout the night.
From our depths,
may we testify to your steadfast lovingkindness and power,
O Blessed Savior and Guide.
We put our trust in You, O Lord of Hosts:
turn our hearts to seek your truth.
Knit us together in devotion and charity;
lead us in paths of kindness and wisdom.
Make us companions in your service
and witnesses to your saving deeds.
Deliver us from enmity and strife:
soften our hearts and strengthen our wills to love.
By the power of the Holy Spirit,
place the seal of your kiss upon us, Lord,
and your protection and blessing upon your children.
