God of restoration,

in our blindness and ignorance,

you open our eyes and lead us to truth;

in our arrogance and defiance,

you still our souls and teach us humility;

in our weakness and displacement,

you protect us and lead us home;


While we deserve only judgement

and the heavy burden of restitution,

you offer us grace,

and the hope of life renewed.

And so we praise you and thank you,

with all our hearts.
