From “An Order of Evening Worship”:

O thou whose chosen dwelling is the heart that longs for thy presence and humbly seeks thy face;

we come to thee as the day declines and the shadows of evening fall.

Deepen within us the sense of shame and sorrow for the wrongs we have done,

for the good we have left undone.

Strengthen every desire to amend our lives according to thy holy will.

Restore us unto the joys of thy salvation.

Bind up that which is broken.

Give light to our minds, strength to our wills, and rest to our souls;

according to thy loving-kindness in Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
