Evening Prayer

When the day comes to an end

and I kneel beside my bed,


I think of all that I have done,

and all that I have said.


Lord, I fail so many times

to make you known to men,


to show your grace to everyone,

to feel the hurt of friends.


But you give me all your strength

to start anew each day,


To show your love to all I pass,

and joyously point the way.


As I lay upon this bed

and sleep within your peace,


May I gain a love for you

that nevermore will cease.
