Almighty God
Help us with that what we
Have heard since childhood,
Being told from an early age on,
Read countless times,
Known from preaching,
Celebrated over the years,
Witnessed to the world,
Told neighbors and
Shared with loved ones
To uphold it as the
Most precious gift of all.
Keep us from becoming
Immune toward the richness and
True understanding of the Gospel.
Keep us vigilant, alert, and wakeful
In the knowledge that
You are our Shepherd, our Rock, and
Our Salvation.
