Lord God almighty,
you are the true peace and love eternal.
Enlighten our souls
with the brightness of your peace,
and purify our consciences
with the sweetness of your love.
Give us peaceful hearts as we wait for you.
Guard and protect us in the adversities of this world,
surround us with your care,
that we may to give ourselves to the love of your peace.
