Morning, I pray... A visual Interpretation:
another day, O Lord. I know not what it will bring forth, but
make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be.
If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit
still, help me to sit quietly. If I am to lie low, help me to
do it patiently.
And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly. Make these
words more than words, and give me the Spirit of
Jesus. Amen. (BCP, 1979 p.461)
