Praying Good Friday

File:Grunewald - predella.jpg

O thou who art the voice in the eternal silence,
the light in the spreading darkness
the warmth in the growing cold,
the peace in the rising fear,
the truth in the crowded confusion:
Wounded, you heal.
Broken, you restore.
Abandoned, you gather.
Disgraced, you redeem.
Hated, you love.
Dying, you live.
Be our light, our hope, our guide, our joy,
our life.
Amen
