May We Live with You and in You

Eric Milner-WhiteO God,
you are from everlasting to everlasting,
and with you a thousand years are but as yesterday.
Hallow the life you have given to us,
that, living with you in this passing world,
we may live with you, and in you,
to all eternity;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Original in traditional English:

O God, who art from everlasting to everlasting, with whom a thousand years are but as yesterday: Hallow the life which thou hast given to us; that, living with thee in this passing world, we may live with thee, and in thee, to all eternity; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
