Life is short,
and we do not have too much time
to gladden the hearts
of those who travel the way with us.
So be swift to love;
make haste to be kind;
swifter still to forgive.
And may the blessing of the one
who made us,
who loves us
and who walks the way with us still;
the one, holy and undivided Trinity
be with us this day
and remain with us always.
