All Saints Litany

In the rising of the sun and in its going down,
We remember them.
In the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter,
In the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring,
We remember them.
In the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer,
In the rustling of leaves and in the beauty of autumn,
We remember them.
In the beginning of the year and when it ends,
We remember them.
When we are weary and in need of strength,
When we are lost and sick at heart,
When we have joys we yearn to share,
We remember them.
So long as we live, they too shall live,
for they are a part of us, as we remember them.
Living God, we give you thanks for calling forth our blessed ones.
Loving God, keep them forever in your presence.
Because of their faithful living, may we also live faithfully.
Amen.
