the author of peace and lover of concord;
to know you is eternal life,
to serve you is perfect freedom.
Defend us your servants in every stress and danger,
that we may trust in your defence
and not fear the power of any adversaries;
through Jesus Christ our Redeemer.
hallowed be your name
on earth as in heaven.
May we grow in the grace and knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ;
to whom be glory both now and to the day of eternity.
The Lord bless us, and preserve us from all evil,
and keep us in eternal life.
