   Almighty and everlasting God,
   you have given us your servants grace,
   by the confession of a true faith,
   to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity
   and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:
   keep us steadfast in this faith,
   that we may evermore be defended from all adversities;
   through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
   who is alive and reigns with you,
   in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
   one God, now and for ever.
