The One in Charge

The One in Charge

Thank God for God!

We praise the One who looks upon us
with compassion and mercy;
who cares for us with tenderness:
soothing our hurts
and calming our raging spirits;
the One who finds what is best in us,
and sets aside what is wicked.

God is ever-faithful
and will never abandon us.
Whether we live or die,
we are the Lord’s.

Those who rely on worldly power
or earthly riches are fools;
a storehouse diamonds
cannot buy another hour of life,
an arsenal of weapons
cannot save us from death.
Salvation comes from God alone.

Be at peace,
for the Beloved cares for you
deeply and truly,
and will protect you from all harm.
Trust in God’s goodness,
and let it show forth in your daily life.

Let us know your faithful love,
O Gracious One,
in every beat of our hearts
and every hope of our souls.
Amen.
