You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. (Psalm 18:28, NIV)
Lord, we need you all the day long, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed. We need you until the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in your mercy, grant to all who are baptized into the life and death of your Son a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last. Amen.
