Lauds on Monday

Monday at Lauds –

With prayer the Father we implore:
O Father, glorious evermore,
We plead with thee for grace and power
To conquer in temptation’s hour.

To guide whate’er we nobly do,
With love all envy to subdue,
To give us grace our wrongs to bear,
To make ill fortune turn to fair.

~Office Hymn, st. 3,4
