Almighty Lord and everlasting God,

Come in the silence of our human night

And give us grace that we may cast away

The works of darkness; from eternal day

Now send to us the armor of your light;

In this brief mortal life protect and guard

Your people whom, in great humility,

Our Savior Christ once visited, that when

On that last day in glorious majesty

To judge the quick and dead he comes again,

We, from our earthbound weaknesses may rise,

Rise to immortal life, unending days,

Through him whose life in Trinity supplies

Now and forever your eternal praise.

Christopher L. Webber
