For all your blessings,
Father, we praise you,
gracious in mercy,
strong in console,
you to our need bring comfort and healing,
love and forgiveness,
making us whole.
Daily around us pain and confusion
crumble our feeble faith into dust.
Yet still we find your love in the darkness,
changing our anxious thoughts into trust.
We carry with us
into your presence prisoners of sickness,
sadness and fear;
grand them to know your peace in their sufferings
and new life flowing when you are near.
Grant us, your servants, grace to work with you
that in your loving task we may share;
mind's understanding, hands skilled for healing,
hearts of compassion, join in love's care.
