Blessing at the end of a hard day

Things have not been easy at work today, painful even.
As the long working day drew to a close I remembered this blessing from the WCC Vancouver assembly worship book. I used it last week for the meditational space at my course in Rome and thought of it again today as I reflected on what motivates me in my job. It's something to do with the unity of all humanity despite everything...


As the earth keeps turning, hurtling through space,
And night falls and day breaks from land to land,
Let us remember people - waking, sleeping, being born, and dying -
One world, one humanity.
Let us go from here in peace.
