Grant us, O Lord, to live this day in gladness and peace,
without stumbling and without stain,
that reaching the evening victorious over all tempation,
we may praise you,
the eternal God,
for you govern all things,
and are praised
now and forever.

Let our prayer, O Lord, come before Thee in the morning. Thou didst take upon Thee our feeble and suffering nature; grant us to pass this day in gladness and peace, without stumbling and without stain; that reaching the even-tide without any temptation, we may praise Thee the Eternal King: through Thy mercy, O our God, who art blessed and dost live, and govern all things, world without end. Amen.—Mozarabic Liturgy
