From Weariness

O Lord,
who art as the shadow
of a great rock in a weary land,
who beholdest thy weak creatures,
weary of labor,
weary of pleasure,
weary of hope deferred,
weary of self:
In thine abundant compassion
and unutterable tenderness,
bring us, we pray thee, unto thy rest. Amen.

(a prayer of Christina Rosetti)
