Original text and translations
Text from the Book of Common Prayer
Prevent us, O Lord, in all our doings with thy most gracious favour,
and further us with thy continual help,
that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in thee
we may glorify thy holy Name,
and finally by thy mercy obtain everlasting life,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
