Be a light, O Lord, to our eyes, and music to our ears. Be sweetness to our taste and contentment to our hearts. Be sunshine to our days and food at our table. Be rest in our night and sufficiency in the hour of our need. Be liberty in our life and everlasting glory at our death; through our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.John Cosin (1594-1672)
author of the cosmos and reader of souls;
we give you the worship that to you alone is due.
We offer to you all that we are and have,
our bodies and our minds.
Forgive us when we conform to values and standards that
fail to reflect your purpose.
By the power of your Spirit, who raised Jesus from death,
transform us through and through,
so that we become effective signs and agents of your perfect will. Amen.
