God, King of heaven
may it please Thee this day to order and to hallow,
to rule and to govern our hearts and our bodies,
our thoughts, our words and our works,
according to Thy law
and in the doing of Thy commandments,
that we, being helped by Thee,
may here and hereafter worthily be saved and delivered by Thee,
O Saviour of the world,
who livest and reignest forever and ever.
