Benediction from Telling Our Stories, Celebrating Ourselves by the Women and Religion Task Force. Published by the Pacific Central District, UUA, 1998.
May the truth that makes us free,
And the hope that never dies,
And the love that casts out fear,
Lead us forward together
Until daylight breaks
And shadows flee away.
While we toil amidst things as they are,
May our vision of things yet to be —
Strengthen and inspire us.
May faithfulness to the good of each —
Become the unfailing virtue of us all.
May our experience be enlightened by understanding —
Our love ennobled by service,
And our faith strengthened by knowledge.
