You Give Your Kind Help

O Lord,
hear us as we pray to you
in the beginning hours of this day.
We give you thanks,
O Lord our God,
for you have redeemed us with your holy blood
and you give your kind help
in answer to the early prayers and petitions we bring you;
you live and reign
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
one God,
now and forever.

Exaudi nos, Domine, supplices tuos, qui in hac hora prima diei referimus tibi gratias Domino Deo nostro, qui nos redemisti de tuo sancto sanguine, ut preces ac petitiones nostras vice primitiarum tibi oblatas pie clementerque suscipias.
