A Prayer for Grace
from Carmina Gadelica
I am bending my knee
In the eye of the Father who created me
In the eye of the Son who died for me
In the eye of the Spirit who cleansed me
In love and desire.
Pour down upon us from heaven
The kindness of Thy forgiveness:
Thou who art uppermost in the city
Be Thou patient with us.
Grant to us, Thou Saviour of Glory
The fear of God, the love of God, and His affection
And the will of God to do on earth at all times
As angels and saints do in heaven:
Each day and night give us Thy peace
Each day and night give us Thy peace.
