O Sire of all Creation,
O Father of my soul,
You who dwell beyond these shadows
Where all is Light and all is whole,

Help me, Your child bearing Your holy name,
To hallow You in all my ways:
Be now my King, that I may do Your will
And earth may echo Heaven's praise.

Grant, according to Your mercy,
What You deem this day I need.
You alone are my Provider;
Both by and on Your word I feed.

And I humbly ask forgiveness
For sins as countless as the sands,
Wrongs toward You greater and deeper
Than I could know at others' hands.

Help me, Your child bearing Your holy name,
To hallow You in all my ways:
Be now my King, that I may do Your will
And earth may echo Heaven's praise.

Far from perils of temptation
Lead me in Your holy way.
And where evil still lies waiting,
Deliver me; for this I say:

You are my King, and I would do Your will;
Yours is the Power, that I may do Your will;
Yours is the Glory when I do Your will;
And earth shall echo Heaven's praise!

O Sire of all Creation,
O Father of my soul.
