Lord Jesus Christ, if day or night
bring anxious thoughts to mind,
grant us to trust you, and delight
in new joys yet to find.
And help us, Lord, if looking back
we feel a sense of loss;
enriched by you, we have no lack -
there stands your empty cross.
Help, Lord, if we are slow to give
the thanks which are your due;
the blessings every hour we live
are loving gifts from you.
And help when smaller things go wrong,
if we are quick to blame,
to know forgiveness swift and strong
and mercy in your name.
Help, Lord, and give us eyes to see
that we are not alone;
since you are ours, so shall we be
content to be your own.
Lord Jesus Christ, if we forget
the gospel of your grace,
remind, renew, prepare us yet
to greet you face to face.
