You are the blessed God,
happy in yourself,
and the source of happiness in your creatures.
Our maker, benefactor, proprietor, upholder,
You have produced and sustained us,
supported and indulged us,
saved and kept us.
In every situation, you meet our needs and miseries.
May we live by you,
live for you,
and never be satisfied with our Christian progress
until we resemble Christ;
May conformity to His principles, temper, and conduct
grow hourly in our lives.
Let your love constrain us into holy obedience,
and render our duty our delight.
If others deem our faith folly,
our meekness infirmity,
our zeal madness,
our hope delusion,
our actions hypocrisy,
may we rejoice to suffer for your name.
Support us by the strength of heaven
that we may never turn back or desire false pleasures
that wilt and disappear into nothing.
As we pursue our heavenly journey by your grace,
let us be known as a people with no aim
but that of a burning desire for you,
and the good and salvation of others.
