Give Us Patience

coverdaleGive us patience and steadfastness in adversity,
strengthen our weakness,
comfort us in trouble and distress,
help us to fight;
grant that in true obedience and satisfaction of mind
we may give over our own wills
to you our Father in all things,
according to the example of your beloved Son;
that in adversity we grudge not,
but offer up ourselves to you without contradiction….
Give us a willing and cheerful mind,
that we may gladly suffer and bear all things for your sake.

Original in traditional English:

Give us patience and steadfastness in adversity,
strengthen our weakness,
comfort us in trouble and distress,
help us to fight;
grant unto us
that in true obedience and satisfaction of mind
we may give over our own wills
unto thee our Father in all things,
according to the example of thy beloved Son;
that in adversity we grudge not,
but offer up ourselves unto thee without contradiction….
Give us a willing and cheerful mind,
that we may gladly suffer and bear all things for thy sake.
