At the End of the Day

As a child at the end of the day, I come to you, my Home, my Comfort, my Shelter. I praise you and celebrate you, my Lord and my all. With Thomas, whose anguish you turned into joy, I declare you my Lord and my God, One with the Father and One with the Spirit. When you come to judge the living and the dead, call me to stand at your right hand and bid me enter your Kingdom. As for now, allow me to open my mouth 
and sing to you:

Jesus, gentle Heart, give my heart tenderness. 
Jesus, Home of the just, shelter me.
Jesus, comforting Arms, ease my fears.
