Prayer For Grace

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 rich blessing 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.


Ta mi lubadh mo ghlun

An suil an Athar a chruthaich mi,

An suil a Mhic a cheannaich mi,

An suil a Spioraid a ghlanaich mi,

Le gradh agus run.

Doirt a nuas oirnn a flathas

Trocair shuairce do mhathas;

Fhir tha 'n uachdar na Cathair,

Dean-sa fathamas ruinn.

Tabhair duinn, a Shlan'ear Aigh,

Eagal De, gaol De, agus gradh,

Is toil De dheanamh air talamh gach re,

Mar ni ainghlich is naoimhich air neamh;

Gach la agus oidhche thoir duinn do sheimh,

Gach la agus oidhche thoir duinn do sheimh.
