Thanks to Thee, God,

Who brought’st me from yesterday

To the beginning of to-day,

Everlasting joy

To earn for my soul

With good intent.

And for every gift of peace

Thou bestowest on me,

My thoughts, my words,

My deeds, my desires

I dedicate to Thee.

I supplicate Thee,

I beseech Thee,

To keep me from offence,

And to shield me to-night,

For the sake of Thy wounds

With Thine offering of grace.
