You may light a candle.
Your word, O God, is a lantern to our feet
And a light upon our path.
The light of Christ be with us.
Let us give thanks to our God,
It is right to offer thanks and praise.
Blessèd are you,
Creator of light and darkness!
As evening falls, you renew your promise
to reveal among us the light of your presence.
May your word be a lantern to our feet
and a light upon our path,
that we may behold your glory coming among us.
Strengthen us in our stumbling weakness
and free our tongues to sing your praise,
Creator, Redeemer, and Giver of Life:
Blessèd be God for ever! Amen.
