O God, you are great,
great in name and counsel,
powerful in your works,
God and Father of your holy Son,
Jesus, our Savior.
Look on us,
the flock you have chosen through him to the glory of your name.
Sanctify us in body and soul
and purify us from all filthiness of flesh and spirit
that we may partake of the mystic blessings you now give,
and judge none of us unworthy of them,
but be our Supporter, our Helper, and Defender;
through your Christ, with him glory, honor, laud, praise, thanksgiving,
be to you and to the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.
