O Lord, make haste and illumine the night.
Say to my soul that nothing happens without You permitting it,
and that nothing of what You permit is without comfort.
O Jesus, Son of God,
You Who were silent in the presence of Your accusers,
restrain my tongue until I find what I should say and how to say it.
Show me the way and make me ready to follow it.
It is dangerous to delay, yet perilous to go forward.
Answer my petition and show me the way.
As the wounded go to the doctor in search of aid,
so do I come to You.
O Lord, give Your peace to my heart.
