Dear God, our one hope, everlasting light of heaven and earth, we break the silence of the peaceful night. Saviour Divine, cast thine eyes upon us! Pour on us the fire of thy mighty grace, that all hell may flee at the sound of the voice; Banish the slumber of a weary soul, that brings forgetfulness of thy laws!
Look with favour upon thy faithful people now gathered here to praise thee. Receive their hymns offered to thy endless glory. May they go forth filled with thy gifts.
Let me not forget my prayers as I go out into the world. Holy Spirit, be with me, and let me praise you and remember you in my every action and thought, for the entire day long. In Christ's name I ask this.
