God’s peace to you in the twilight,
in the long winter night.
God’s comfort to you in the sadness,
in the mournful places of your soul.
God’s courage to you in your weakness,
facing turmoil, facing trial.
God’s love to you in your pain,
in the sadness of the small one who weeps inside of you.
God’s presence to you in your loneliness,
in the dark, empty corners of your heart.
God’s peace, God’s comfort, God’s love,
God’s blessing be yours.
– Beth A. Richardson
