'περ της ανωθεν ειρηνης, και της σωτηριας των ψυχων ημων, του Κυριου δεηθωμεν

'ΕΚΤΕΝΗ, or Great Collect

Lord, to our humble prayers attend:

Let Thou Thy peace from heaven descend,

And to our souls salvation send.

Have mercy, Lord, upon us.

Rule in our hearts, Thou Prince of Peace,

The welfare of Thy Church increase,

And bid all strife and discord cease.

Have mercy, Lord, upon us.

To all who meet for worship here,

Do Thou in faithfulness draw near;

Inspire with faith and godly fear.

Have mercy, Lord, upon us.

152

Oh, clothe Thy ministers with might,

To rule within Thy Church aright,

That they may serve as in Thy sight.

Have mercy, Lord, upon us.

The sovereign ruler of our land,

Protect by Thine Almighty hand,

And all around the throne who stand.

Have mercy, Lord, upon us.

Let clouds and sunshine bless the earth,

Give fruits and flowers a timely birth,

Our harvests crown with peaceful mirth,

Have mercy, Lord, upon us.

Let voyages by land and sea

In danger's hour in safety be;

The suffering and the captives free.

Have mercy, Lord, upon us.

153

Around us let Thy shield be cast,

Till wrath and danger are o'erpast,

And tribulation's bitter blast.

Have mercy, Lord, upon us.
