Help Us Please You

Look on us and hear us,
O Lord our God;
and help us in our endeavors to please you
which you yourself have given us;
as you have given the first act of will,
so lead us to the completion of our work;
grant that we may be able to finish
what you have given us the desire to begin;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
