Everlasting God, God of Love and God who is Love, Thank you for showing us love, may your name be praised, lover of my soul! Our soul waits for you, O Lord; you who is our help and our shield, for in you our hearts rejoices. May you be praised both now forever! Give us the heart to love and take away our hearts of stone. Give us the eyes to see you in the least among us and a generous heart to help them through Christ our Lord. Amen.
