Almight God which hast me brought


 

Almighty God, which hast me brought in safety to this 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 every 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. (William Leighton, 17th cent.)
