O Lord, the Spirit of love abiding, the voice in the darkness guiding, hear my prayer.  Be in my head, and in my understanding.  Be in my eyes, and in my looking.  Be in my mouth, and in my speaking.  Be in my heart, and always in my thinking.  Lead me, Lord.  Lead me in the paths of peace.  Make your way plain before my eyes.  For it is only by your guidance, only by your tender love, that I may dwell in safety.  God be in my life, and in my breathing.  God be in my heart, and in my loving.  God be in my thoughts, and in my doing.  God be in my joy, and in my laughing.  God be by my side, be my Protector.  God be at my end, and with me ever. [Sarum Primer, Psalm 5:8; Psalm 4:8]
