It is night.
The night is for stillness.
Let me be still in the presence of God.
It is night after a long day.
what has been done has been done;
let it be.
The night is dark.
Let my fears of the darkness of the world
and of my own life
rest in you
The night is quiet.
Let the quietness of your peace enfold me,
all dear to me,
and all who have no peace.
The night heralds the dawn.
Let me look expectantly to a new day.
In your name I pray
