O Lord our God, under the shadow of Thy wings let us hope. 

Thou wilt support us, both when little and even to gray hairs.

When our strength is of Thee, it is strength

 but, when our own, it is feebleness

 We return unto Thee,

O Lord, that from their weariness our soul may rise towards Thee

leaning on the thing which Thou has created

 and passing on to Thyself

who hast wonderfully made them

for with Thee is refreshment and true strength

Amen

Lord God,

I know not what I ought to ask of Thee

Thou only know what I need

Thou lovest me better than I know how to love myself.

O Father! Give to Thy child that which he himself  knows not how to ask.

I dare not ask either for crosses or consolations

I simply present myself before Thee

I open my heart to Thee

Behold my needs which I know not myself

see and do according to Thy tender mercy

Smite, or heal

depress me, or raise me up

I adore all Thy purposes without knowing them

I am silent

I offer myself in sacrifice

I yield myself to Thee

I would have no other desire than to accomplish Thy will

Teach me to pray

Pray Thyself in me.

 

Amen.

O Thou whose glory fills the heavens,
Whose bounty clothes the earth,
To Thee a poem of thanks we raise
For blessings from our birth.
For that untiring love Thou dost,
From day to day renew,
O may it on our hearts descend
Like heaven-distilled dew.
For mercy great, unending still,
Which gave up to the grave
Thine only Son, the Sinless One,
Our sinful souls to save.
While entering on another year
Our cares on Thee we cast,
Beseeching aid in days to come
Which cheered us through the past.
That still the freedom may be ours
To kneel down in Thy sight,
And worship Thee at shut of day,
And in the morning light.
That from temptation’s fatal paths
Thou turn our steps away;
And keep us from unholy thoughts
That lead the mind astray.
No more may lust of worldly wealth
Command thoughts that are thine;
Nor may we envy other’s lot,
Or at our own repine.
Than all the riches earth can boast
Or gems beneath the sea,
We know the pious, humble heart,
More precious is to Thee.
How needful, then, to train our thoughts,
And fan the heavenly flame
Of faith, in the believing heart,
Triumphing o’er sin and shame
And holding by the Word, thou hast
For grace and guidance given,
Pass trough this world in holy fear,
True candidates for heaven.
