One: Night comes early. Darkness surrounds us. The cool night air makes us shiver.
All: Lord, we know your light shines brighter in the darkness.
One: Fear wraps its poisonous fangs paralyzing our progress forward
All: Lord, we know your love casts out all fear.
One: We set our jaw and face our fear striking out on a path less travelled.
All: Lord, we know we are not alone for you are always with us.
One: May the light of Christ, the love of God and the presence of the Holy Spirit surround you always.
All: Amen and Amen!
