God of comfort and of peace,
In your presence worries cease.
You restore the broken soul;
Make the dead-and-rotten whole.
As we come before your throne,
You make all our cares your own;
Make our tattered spirits new,
Livened as we rest in you.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort.
--2 Corinthians 1:3
