In the depths of despair,

In the shadows of death,

In the mire of depression,

In the bleekness of darkness,

You are there.

In the brillance of light,

In the glow of life,

In the heights of joy,

In the praise of gladness,

You are there.


Whatever the circumstnace, whatever the life situation, whether good or bad, whether for health or ill, you are there in the midst of it with us.

Remind us of this Lord. Speak this truth to our hearts, by your Spirit. Open our ears to hear what your Son said, that you are with us always.

What has happened to us, what is happening to us, what will come in the days to come, speak these words to us, Father.

You are here.
