Original text and translations
O Lord, raise up (we pray thee) thy power and come among us,
and with great might succour us; that whereas, through our sins and wickedness,
we are sore let and hindered in running the race that is set before us,
thy bountiful grace and mercy may speedily help and deliver us;
through the satisfaction of thy Son our Lord, to whom with thee
and the Holy Ghost be honour and glory, world without end. Amen
