Prayer from “Comfort, Ye, My People” (Johann Olearius,1671) for Indonesia

Comfort, God, your Indonesia,
speak peace, and tenderness within
comfort ones who are grieve
without a grave
those washed away by tsunami wave.

Speak O God in words of grace
bring recovery and hope!
Tell them you will stir compassion
move the world to offer caring —
dry their tears, be born with them.
Dry their tears, be born with them.
