Closing Litany: All Belong to God


Here’s is a closing litany for Ash Wednesday written by Lisa Frenz for the Mount Carmel Evangelical Lutheran Church in Portland Oregon.

Closing Litany

The End is God’s. The Beginning is God’s.
The Storm is God’s. The Peace is God’s.
The Depths are God’s. The Heights are God’s
The Dark is God’s. The Light is God’s.
For all times, all things and all, all belong to God.
Travel with God to the end from the beginning.
Walk with the Lord of your salvation.
Continue with God during the storm as well as the peace.
Walk with the God of your deliverance.
Journey with God through the depths and the heights.
Walk with the Lord of your restoration.
Tarry with God in the dark and the light.
Walk with the Lord of your assurance;
For all times, all things and all, all belong to God.
Amen.
