O Lord, be our protection. Lord, You who is our redemption, direct our minds by Your gracious Presence, and watch over our paths with guiding love; that among the snares which lie hidden in the path wherein we walk, we may so pass onwards with hearts fixed on You, that by the track of faith we may come to be where You would have us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Mozarabic Liturgy, A.D. 700.)
