God of grace, God of goodness,
God of the bright stars and God of this gathering of sinners,
yours is the mercy we live by and
yours the wisdom we seek after.
Take our hearts — weary and anxious;
take our lives — shamed and selfish;
take our worries and our fascinations,
our laments and our triumphs,
and from it all fashion songs of praise
that bless your name and
testify to future generations
of your steadfast love.
By your grace and for the sake of your glory. Amen.
