An Ancient Morning Prayer

O Lord,
direct our steps this day into the way of peace,
and strengthen our hearts to obey your commandments.
May the Dayspring visit us from on high,
and give light to those who sit in darkness
and the shadow of death,
that they may adore you for your mercy,
follow you for your truth,desire you for your sweetness,
for you are the blessed Lord God of Earth,
now and forever.
Amen.
