Evening

Glory to you O God of the evening
You, who in the enfolding darkness
gently embrace my tired spent hours,
and tenderly gather to yourself
the tangle of life
which was your gift of love
at the dawn of this day;
   – letting all be freed by your
           breath of forgiveness,
   – letting all know wholeness
           through your healing touch,
letting all rest in your heartbeat, –
loved and welcomed
into the one glorious sea of eternity.
           Glory to you O God.
