Almighty God, Who hast me brought
In safety to the present day,
Keep me from sin in heart and thought,
And teach me what to do and say.

Prosper me, Lord, in all my works,
Help me with thy continual grace,
Keep me from Satan vile that lurks
To trap my soul in ev'ry place.

Almighty Lord and God of love,
Direct mine heart and guide my ways,
Amend my miss, my mind remove
From all that from thy glory strays.
