Lord Jesus, friend to the weary,
be the strength of all who come to you;
Lord Jesus, friend to the sick,
be the healing of all who come to you;
Lord Jesus, friend to the poor,
be the dignity of all who come to you;
Lord Jesus, friend to the excluded,
be the freedom of all who come to you;
until all of us stand renewed before you
and the whole world lives to praise your name.
Amen.
