God our Guardian and our Guide
(An Evening Prayer)

God our Guardian and our Guide
Shatter all our selfish pride.
Pray, redeem us, recreate us
For the coming day.

Rule of Justice, Christ – our Life
Heal our warfare, quiet our strife.
Pray, redeem us, recreate us
For the coming day.

Sign of Mercy, Christ – our Way
Cleanse our hearts, our fears allay.
Pray, redeem us, recreate us
For the coming day.

Source of Wisdom, Christ – our Light
Lead us through the darkest night.
Pray, redeem us, recreate us
For the coming day.

God our Guardian and our Guide
Shatter all our selfish pride
Pray, redeem us, recreate us
For the coming day.
