Collect of the Day

You who are,

Who were,

Who are to come,

Before whose judgement

All that is not love fades away:

Save us from the violence,

That seeks to claim our hearts,

So that we may hear a different voice

And belong to you in truth;

Through Jesus Christ, the wounded king of all. Amen.
