O LORD, we beseche thee favourably to heare the praiers of thy people; that we whiche are justly punished for our offences, may be mercifully delivered by thy goodnes, for the glory of thy name, through Jesu Christ our savior, who liveth and reigneth, &c.
Collect for the sonday called Septuagesima 1549 BCP
who alone can bring order
to the unruly wills and passions of sinful humanity:
Give your people grace
so to love what you command
and to desire what you promise;
that, among the many changes of the world,
our hearts may surely there be fixed
where true joys are to be found;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
