O Lord, our hiding-place, grant us wisdom, we pray Thee, to seek no hiding-place out of Thee in life or in death. Now hide us in Thine own Presence from the provoking of all men, and keep us from the strife of tongues. Make us meek, humble, patient, and teach us to seek peace and ensue it—Amen.
Christina G. Rossetti.
O Holy and ever-blessed Lord, teach us, we beseech Thee, to love one another, to exercise forbearance and forgiveness towards our enemies; to recompense no man evil for evil, but to be merciful even as Thou, our Father in Heaven, art merciful: that so we may continually follow after Thee in all our doings, and be more and more conformed to Thine image and likeness—Amen.
New Church Book of Worship, 1876.
