You Have Made Me for the Praise of Your Name

wilhelm_loeheEver blessed Trinity,
to your mercy I commit this day
my body and soul,
together with all my ways and undertakings.
Be gracious to me,
enlarge my heart and open my lips,
that I may praise and magnify your name
which alone is holy.
And as you have made me
for the praise of your holy name,
grant that I may yield my life
in service to your honor
in humble love and fear.
Amen.
