Collect for the Renewal of Life

O God, the King eternal, whose light divides the day from the 
night and turns the shadow of death into the morning: Drive 
far from us all wrong desires, incline our hearts to keep your 
law, and guide our feet into the way of peace; that, having 
done your will with cheerfulness while it was day, we may, 
when night comes, rejoice to give you thanks; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen.

(BCP 99)
