Eight Line Memorial Verse

 Serenity Prayer

God, Grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change…
Courage to change
the things I can
and Wisdom to
know the difference.


New Dawning

There is no night without a dawning,
No winter without a spring
And beyond death’s dark horizon
Our hearts once more will sing.
For those who leave us for a while
Have only gone away
Out of a restless careworn world
Into a brighter day.

Cardinal Newman

May He support us all the day long,
till the shades lengthen 
and the evening comes, 
and the busy world is hushed, 
and the fever of life is over, 
and our work is done. 
Then in His mercy may 
He give us a safe lodging, 
and a holy rest and peace at the last.
