A Collect for Rest, Comfort, and Joy
O Lord our God, who rescues the needy from trouble, gather us into your arms, we who are weary and troubled by the struggles of this age, that we might find rest and joy and comfort in your presence and know in our deepest hearts that with you we are home, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
'And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.' - Isaiah 35:10
