The song of evening welcomes my spirit home and sets my heart at rest. Lover of Life may my life join that song. May I find renewal in the notes of welcome, the open song that changes with each singer and each land yet remains true to love and mercy. May I find joy in the dreaming that is the song of being, shared with others, reminding us of our ideals and aspirations, recalling us to the way the heart of hope lives through our deeds and words. May I give myself whole-heartedly to the song of welcome, making refuge wherever people are seeking safety, home wherever people are homeless, and rest wherever people are restless. Lover of Life, the song of evening welcomes my spirit home and sets my heart at rest. May I rejoice in that, give thanks, and join the song. Amen.
