Keep O Lord, we beseech Thee,
under the shadow of Thy wings
that we may obey Thy will,
and enjoy Thy presence always.
Compass us about with Thy holy angels.
Shield us with the armor of Thy righteousness
upon the right hand and upon the left.
Deliver us from the snares of the evil one,
and grant us to pass
and all the days of our life,
without stumbling and without offence;
Thine it is O Lord to pity and to save...
"By words and works we can but touch or influence a few;
by our PRAYERS
we may benefit the whole world
and every individual of it!
High and low,
friend, stranger, and enemy."
- J. H. Newman
