Traditional Prayers for Anglican Catholics
         
         
   

The Perfection of God

We pray to thee, O Lord,
who art the supreme Truth,
and all truth is from you.
We beseech thee, O Lord,
who art the highest Wisdom,
and all the wise depend on thee for their wisdom.
Thou art the supreme Joy,
and all who are happy owe it to thee.
Thou art the Light of minds,
and all receive their understanding from thee.
We love thee,
indeed we love thee above all things.
We seek thee, we follow thee,
and we are prepared to serve thee.
We desire to dwell under thy power
for thou art the King of all. Amen.

King Alfred the Great (849-901 AD)
