A NIGHT OF SILENCE 

O, Lord, you have been with me all through the day. Now evening has come. the shadows have lengthened into darkness. Let my busy world now grow quiet, the feverish concerns of this day be stilled, my work put away. Grant me a night of silence with you.

I have sought all through the day to hear your whisperings in my soul and  to close my ears to the clear call of the world.

Let me abandon all that passes with the day. Let me choose you. Stay by my side and speak to my spirit as I seek what will last forever. Be my health. Be my peace. Be my life.

And, as my day ends, keep me in your embrace through the night, give me quiet, rest and your peace, now and forever. Amen.

The Imitation of Christ: a Kempis
