   Blessed Lord,
   who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning:
   help us so to hear them,
   to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them
   that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word,
   we may embrace and for ever hold fast
   the hope of everlasting life,
   which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ,
   who is alive and reigns with you,
   in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
   one God, now and for ever.
