The third Sunday after Trinity.
O Lord our God, enthroned above
in everlasting light:
Hear us! we supplicate Thy love
to guide our hearts aright.
We thank Thee, that to us is given
a true desire to pray;
send to our souls, O Lord, from Heaven
Thy Spirit’s quickening ray.
Thou bidd’st us cast our care on Thee;
Thou carest, Lord, for us;
O what is man? O what are we,
that Thou shouldst love us thus?
Lord, by Thy mighty aid defend
and save from every ill;
we to Thy love ourselves commend;
conform us to Thy will.
To us nor change, nor chance can be,
if Thou Thy seal dost give;
but strengthened, ‘stablished, built in Thee,
we unto Thee shall live.

O Lord, we beseech thee mercifully to hear us; and grant that we, to whom thou hast given an hearty desire to pray, may by thy mighty aid be defended and comforted in all dangers and adversities; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
