LORD my God, great, eternal, wonderful in glory, Who keeps covenant and promises for those that love You with their whole heart. You are the Life of all, the Help of those that flee to You, the Hope of those who cry to You; cleanse me from my sins, secret and open, and from every thought displeasing to Your goodness,—cleanse my body and soul, my heart and conscience, that with a pure heart and a clear soul, with perfect love and calm hope, I may venture confidently and fearlessly to pray.
