O Lord, you have bestowed strength and bravery on me when I was weak

You have showed me the good and the joyous

When terror and fear grip me, you have comforted me

When tears overwhelm me, you have cheered me

O Father of the Universe who loves his creations


Guide and bless me

Lead me to the high places

Scatter my enemies

Light the fire

And I will follow you unto that temporal death

Prologue to eternal life and beauty

And then when the trumpets of your glory ring

Let me, a witness and companion, sing
