Preserve Us with Your Mercy

O Lord,
preserve your church with your perpetual mercy.
Without you, our mortal flesh can only fail.
Keep us and lead us away from all things hurtful,
and lead us to all things beneficial for our salvation;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
Amen.
