Psalm 63:1 (Common English Bible)
God! My God! It’s you—I search for you!
My whole being thirsts for you!
My body desires you
in a dry and tired land,
no water anywhere.
from The Faith We Sing #2236 Gather Us In
Here in this place, new light is streaming
now is the darkness vanished away,
see, in this space, our fears and our dreamings,
brought here to you in the light of this day.
Closing Prayer: Prayer of St Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; when there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood, as to understand, to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
