Compline (night prayers)

Grief, mourning. Praise, hope.

Lord your ways are unsearchable to me. May I walk in faithfulness and obedience, may I never doubt your love.

"Is there no balm in Gilead?
Is there no physician there?
Why then has the health of the daughter of my people
not been restored?
O that my head were waters,
and my eyes a fountain of tears,
that I might weep day and night
for the slain daughter of my people!"
~Jer. 8:7

"O Lord, you are my God and King, and I will ever bless your name;
I will extol you every day, and evermore your praise proclaim.
You, Lord, are greatly to be praised, your greatness is beyond our thoughts:
All generations shall tell forth the mighty wonders you have wrought.

How rich in grace are you, O Lord, full of compassion, merciful,
Your anger always slow to rise; your steadfast love you show to all.
For you are good in all your ways, your creatures know your constant care.
To all your works your love extends, all souls your tender mercies share.

Your works will give you thanks, O Lord, your saints your mighty acts will show,
Till all the peoples of the earth your kingdom, power, glory know.
Eternal is your kingdom, Lord, forever strong, forever sure;
While generations rise and die, your high dominion will endure."
~Ps.145/C.H.H. Parry
