++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

O thou, who art the Light of the world, the Desire of all nations, and the Shepherd of souls;

let thy light shine in the darkness, that all the ends of the earth may see thy salvation;

by the lifting up of thy cross, gather the peoples to thine obedience,

so that there may be one flock, one shepherd, one holy kingdom of righteousness and peace.

Stir our hearts that by our prayers, our gifts, and our labors,

we may have part in the spreading of thy gospel;

and hasten the time when all peoples shall worship thee;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
