May your grace shine down upon the dark memories of this day,
May your compassion surround those who shed tears,
May your strength engulf those who are still weak,
And may your peace descend upon the troubled soul.
Your children gather beneath your wings,
Seeking solace within a troubled world,
Seeking wisdom in the midst of confusion,
And seeking shelter from the evil of the day.
The offspring of Abraham search for hope,
The children of Isaac see your star,
The children of Ishmael see your crescent moon,
And the children of Jesus see your empty tomb.
On this day of remembrance we call on you,
We weep for the loss,
We reflect on the tragedy,
But we hope for the future.
