King of Glory, Divine Majesty,

Every perfection adorns thy nature and sustains thy throne;

The heavens and earth are thine,

The world is thine and its fullness.

Thy power created the universe from nothing;

Thy wisdom has managed all its multiple concerns,

presiding over nations, families, individuals.

They goodness is boundless;

all creatures wait on thee

are supplied by thee,

are satisfied in thee.

How precious are the thoughts of thy mercy and grace!

How excellent thy lovingkindness that draws men to thee!

Teach  us to place our happiness in thee, the blessed God,

never seeking life among the dead things of earth,

or asking for that which satisfies the deluded;

But may we prize the light of thy smile,

implore the joy of thy salvation,

find our heaven in thee.

Thou hast attended to our happiness more than we can do;

Though we are fallen creatures thou has not neglected us.

In love and pity thou has provided us a savior;

Apply his redemption to our hearts,

by justifying our persons,

and sanctifying our natures.

We confess our transgressions, have mercy on us.

We are weary, give us rest,

ignorant, make us wise unto salvation,

helpless, let thy strength be made perfect in our weakness,

poor and needy, bless us with Christ’s unsearchable riches,

perplexed and tempted, let us travel on unchecked,

undismayed, knowing that thou hast said, “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.”

Blessed by thy name!
