Blessed be Thou, most gracious God, that again Thou hast brought light out of darkness and caused the morning to appear!
Blessed be Thou that Thou dost send me forth, in health and vigor, to the duties and doings of another day!
Go with me, I beseech Thee, through all the sunlit hours, and so protect me from every evil way that, when evening comes, I need not hide my head in shame.
In Thy great mercy save us all from the temptations that do severally beset us, and bring us to everlasting life, by the power of the Holy Cross. Amen.
