Keep us alert on our journeying, God:

full of wonder

strong in your strength

cherished in our weakness.

Summon us to live

in your loving justice

with friend and with stranger

and with those we find hard to love.

In bad times and good times

you are always with us,

Gifter of the moments

of our nights and days.

– Ruth Burgess
