based on Luke 2:29-32
Source of all rest and peace, dismiss me now into my evening’s quiet,
You have promised no less and so much more.
We are witnesses to your salvation,
Which You did for all people and continue to make inviting and effective.
The Living Word is open for all to perceive and trust,
It is the ground of our faith and hope.
Those who trust in God’s revelation find an anchor for their souls.
Source of all rest and peace, dismiss us now into our evening’s harbor-
Adrift no more,
At home in You.
