Lord God, Giver of Life, Source of all healing,
who alone can help us grow in wholeness:
We thank you for the gift of life and health,
and remembering your faithful servants
Cosmus and Damian
we ask you to guide and uphold
all doctors, surgeons, hospital staffs, and
all engaged in the ministry of healing
together with those they serve,
that disease and disunity
may everywhere be overcome;
through Christ the Divine Healer,
who suffered and died and lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
our God of Salvation, now and always.

—Saint Cosmus and Saint Damian

To the Better Land

Cast thy burden on the Lord;
Only lean upon His word:
Thou shalt soon have cause to bless
His eternal faithfulness.
Ever in the raging storm
Thou shalt see His cheering form,
Hear His pledge of coming aid:
“It is I, be not afraid.”

Cast thy burden at His feet;
Linger at His mercy seat:
He will lead thee by the hand
Gently to the better land.
He will gird thee by His power,
In thy weary, fainting hour:
Lean, then, loving, on His word;
Cast thy burden on the Lord.

There Is a Sacred Happiness for Us All

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness;
May all be free from sorrow and the causes of sorrow;
May all never be separated from the sacred happiness
which is sorrowless;
And may all live in equanimity,
without too much attachment and too much aversion,
And live believing in the equality of all that lives.

—Buddhist Chant
