evening prayer

May 16, 2008

In peace we will lie down and sleep; for you alone, Lord, make us dwell in safety.
Abide with us, Lord Jesus, for the night is at hand and the day is now past.
As the night watch looks for the morning, so do we look for you, O Christ.
May the Holy Spirit of God bless and sanctify us,
So that we may be consecrated in the truth.  Amen.

An Order of Compline
