Queen Elizabeth II

Today, Canada marks Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.  We quote a verse from a new hymn composed in honour of her majesty and her life of faith in Jesus Christ by praying one of the verses of the hymn:
In these days of change and trial,
be the rock on which we stand,
when we fear in this new season,
hold us firmly in your hands.
May we rise to her example,
to be humble, kind and fair,
swift to pray and slow to anger,
choosing faith and not despair.
