Father of compassion,
Author of loving kindness and mercy—
Thou art “our light and our salvation.”
Thou art the strength of our life,
our Comforter and Redeemer.
With the Psalmist we exclaim:
“Though an host should encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear;
though war should rise against me,
even then would I confide in Thee.” (Psalms 27:3)
Compassionate Father
Thou didst hear the cry of Thy children,
calling to Thee out of the depths of misery and despair.
Thou didst answer their prayers.
Thou didst raise up mighty men of valor and humanity
who stayed the hand of the oppressor
so that the doom
which threatened to destroy Thy unfortunate ones
was averted.
Thou didst touch the common humanity
in the heart of Jew and Gentile alike
so that, united in the cause of justice and truth,
they made right to triumph over might,
and mercy to triumph over harshness.
O Father of Mercy,
answer the prayers of all who call upon Thee.
Free all who are oppressed—
and strike off the chains
of those who are enslaved,
whether physically or spiritually.
Bind Thy children together
with bonds of friendship
and brotherhood—
and may the love of Thee
lead all men, of all creeds,
“to do justly,
to love mercy
and to walk humbly
with Thee.” (Micah 6:8)
