Glory to you O God of the evening

You, who in the enfolding darkness

gently embrace my tired spent hours,

and tenderly gather to yourself

the tangle of life

which was your gift of love

at the dawn of this day;

– letting all be freed by your

breath of forgiveness,

– letting all know wholeness

through your healing touch,

letting all rest in your heartbeat, –

loved and welcomed

into the one glorious sea of eternity.

Glory to you O God.
