O holy Word of God, You govern all creation with Your strong yet gentle care. Come and show Your people the way to salvation.
Creator and Redeemer of human nature,
that Your Word should take flesh
in an ever-virgin womb,
look with favor on our prayers,
that Your only Begotten Son,
having taken to Himself our humanity,
may be pleased to grant us
a share in his divinity.
Who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and will be forever. Amen
