Almighty God, which hast me brought

Almighty God, which hast me brought
in safety to this present day,
Keep me from sinne in heart and thought,
and teach me what to doe and say.
Prosper me, Lord, in all my workes,
helpe me with thy continuall grace.
Keepe me from Satan vilde that lurkes
to trappe my soule in every place.
Almighty Lord and God of love,
direct mine heart and guide my wayes.
Amend my misse, my minde remove
from all that from thy glory straies.

Sir William Leighton (c. 1565 - 1622)
The Teares or Lamentacions of a Sorrowfull Soule, 1614
