We Commend Ourselves This Day

1280px-meister_des_sakramentarium_gelasianum_001Into your hands, O Lord, we commend ourselves this day.
Let your presence be with us to its close.
Strengthen us to remember
that in whatever good work we do we are serving you.
Give us a diligent and watchful spirit,
that we may seek to know your will in all things,
and in knowing it, gladly to perform it,
to the honor and glory of your name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
