Taken from Jeremiah 31:
Lord, redeem us from those too strong for us.
May we sing songs of joy.
May we be radiant because of the many gifts You have given us.
May our life be like a watered garden, and all our sorrows be gone.
May our women dance for joy, and the men — old and young — join in the celebration.
Turn our mourning to joy.
Comfort us and exchange our sorrow for rejoicing.
Supply us with an abundance of offerings.
Satisfy us with your bounty.
In our body, may city dwellers and farmers and shepherds alike live together in peace and happiness.
May you give rest to the weary and joy to the sorrowing.
May you greatly increase our population and multiply our number.
Lord, plant us and build us up.
This I pray.
