The second Sunday after the Epiphany.
Almighty God, Who gavest birth
to all things both in Heaven and Earth,
Who governest all things alway,
Eternal God! To Thee we pray!
Lo! now we bow before Thy feet;
O Lord! Thy seeking people meet;
We worship in Thy holy fear:
O Lord, our supplications hear!
To every humble contrite heart
Thy blessed gift of peace impart;
Bid all our sins and sorrows cease,
and give Thy weary people peace!
Peace all the days of all our life,
peace in the midst of earthly strife,
peace drawn from Heaven by threefold cord,
the Peace of God, through Christ our Lord!

John Hatton (d. 1793)
Almighty and everlasting God, who dost govern all things in heaven and earth; mercifully hear the supplications of thy people, and grant us thy peace all the days of our life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
