God of creation, We have seen the horror—
Great devastation, Overwhelming sorrow!
Hear now your people—Homes and loved ones taken—
Christ of compassion, You who calmed the rough sea—
Hurricane crashing, We prayed for your mercy!
Comfort your people! Hold them close, now giving
Hope for their living.
Give to your children Food to end their hunger,
Clean water’s blessing, News of those they long for!
And by your Spirit, Use our gifts and labors
To help our neighbors.
