Soothe Your suffering ones...


Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
----
In the same way, let your light shine before men,
that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
---
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
---
Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight,
and give Your angels and saints charge over those who sleep.
Tend Your sick ones, O Lord Christ.
Rest Your weary ones.
Bless Your dying ones.
Soothe Your suffering ones.
Shield Your joyous ones,
and all for Your love's sake.
AMEN.
