Lord of Shabbat,
You are the light of the world,
calling me out of darkness
into your marvelous presence.
In this night ending in beautiful day
I draw close,
entering into your sweet rest,
warming my heart against yours,
you are my flame of hope.
I lean in, trust in, depend on you,
letting go of my cares,
your warmth and life revive me.
I sit at your table,
surrounded, infilled by Abba and Son,
in the fellowship of your Spirit —
and my cup is full,
my joy is complete.
I bless you, Lord of Shabbat,
