All hail, O Lord, my King! Reverently would I greet The at the beginning of another Day! All praise and love and loyalty be unto Thee, O Lord most high!
Fobid, O Lord that my thoughts today should be wholly occupied with the world’s passing show. Seeing that that in Thy lovingkindness Thou hast given me the power to lift my mind to the contemplation of things unseen and eternal.
Forbid that I should remain content with things of sense and time. Grant rather that each day may do something so to strengthen my hold upon the unseen world, so to increase my sense of its reality. So to attach my heart to its holy interests that, as the end of my earthly life draws ever nearer, I may not grow to be a part of these fleeting earthly surroundings, but instead grow more and more conformed to the life of the world to come.
O Thou who seest and knowest all things, give me grace, I pray The so to know The and so to see Thee that in knowing Thee I may know myself even as I am most perfectly-known of Thee.
Cause my thoughts to dwell much today on the life and death of Jesus Christ, my Lord, so that I may see all things in the light of redemption which Thou has granted me in His name. Amen.
