Stay with us, Lord
for the day is far spent
and we have not yet recognized your face
in each of our brothers and sisters.

Stay with us, Lord
for the day is far spent
and we have not yet shared your bread
in grace with our brothers and sisters.

Stay with us, Lord
for the day is far spent
and we have not yet listened to your Word
on the lips of our brothers and sisters.

Stay with us, Lord
because our very night becomes day
when you are there.

prayer from Korea

_______________

So they drew near to the village to which they were going.
[Jesus] acted as if he were going farther,
but they urged him strongly, saying,
“Stay with us, for it is toward evening and the day is now far spent.”
So he went in to stay with them.
