collect

for the renewal of life

o God
the King eternal
whose light divides
the day from the night
and turns the shadow of death
into the morning
drive
far from us
all wrong desires
incline our hearts
to keep your law
and guide our feet
into the way of peace
that
having done your will
with cheerfulness
while it was day
we may
when night comes
rejoice to give you thanks
through Jesus Christ our Lord

amen

from the book of common prayer
