Night come close and wrap your mantle of soft darkness over we who are weary and need rest. Let our hearts touch one another, the wonder of the stars, the night stories and songs that bring merciful sleep and inspirational dreams. Love come close and wrap us in your mercies, teaching us how to be kind by being present through trials and storms and through celebration and quiet contentment. Let our hearts meet one another in the songs and stories of hope and caring, and prepare us for the new day. Night bear mercy. Love bear mercy. Let every heart bear mercy. Amen.
