On this day,
on every day,
let us mourn with those who mourn.
For our hearts are broken,
and all the sorrow and pain and suffering of the world
has fallen in the shattered shells of ourselves.
Let us take us these fragile broken pieces
and lay them on Thine altar.
Let us make our broken hearts an offering unto Thee.
O, God, we hurt.
O God, let us find some comfort,
in doing Thy work,
in mourning with those who mourn,
and comforting those who stand in need of comfort.
Lord, forgive us our sins,
on this day,
on every day.
