O Lord Jesus Christ, Thou, good Shepherd of the sheep, who camest to
seek the lost, and to gather them to Thy fold, have compassion upon
those who have wandered from Thee; feed those who hunger, cause the
weary to lie down in Thy pastures, bind up those who are broken in
heart, and strengthen those who are weak, that we, relying on Thy care
and being comforted by Thy love, may abide in Thy guidance to our lives’
end; for Thy name’s sake. Amen.
