NIGHT PRAYER: Friday 7/17

Even though this day may end
   with my troubles unresolved,
Even if I go to bed
   and only toss and turn,
Even if my heart is heavy,
   burdened with my fears,
You are by my side, Lord,
   you are by my side...

Even when my thoughts are dark
   and confusion clouds my sight,
Even when I'm short on hope
   and don't know whom to trust,
Even when I feel alone
   with none to call for help,
You are by my side, Lord,
   you are by my side...

Bright your light
   that leads me through the shadows, Lord,
Bright your light,
   showing me the way,
Bright your light,
   when I am lost and lonely:
You are by my side, Lord,
   you are by my side...

Protect me, Lord, in the dark of night
   and watch over me as I sleep
that awake, I might keep watch with you
   and asleep,  rest in your peace...

The Clouds Veil by Liam Lawton

Even when the rain hides the stars,
Even though the mist swirls the hills,
Even when the dark clouds veil the sky,
You are by my side

Even when the sun shall fall in sleep,
Even when at dawn the sky shall weep,
Even in the night when storms shall rise,
You are by my side You are by my side

Bright the stars at night 
That mirror heaven's way to you.
Bright the stars in light 
Where dwell the saints in love and truth.

Deep the feast of life 
Where saints shall gather in deep peace.
Deep in heaven’s light 
Where sorrows pass beyond death’s sleep

Blest are they who sing 
The fellowship of saints in light.
Blest is heaven’s King.
All saints adore the Lord, Most High.
