Dear Lord, I bless you, O God most high and Lord of mercies. It is You who forever works great and mysterious deeds for me, glorious, wonderful, and numberless; who provides me with sleep as a rest from my infirmities and as a repose for my body tired by labor. I thank you that you have not destroyed me in my transgressions, but in your love toward mankind you have raised me up, as I lay in despair, that I may glorify your majesty.
I entreat your infinite goodness, enlighten the eyes of my understanding and raise up my mind from the heavy sleep of indolence. Open my mouth and fill it with your praise. So that, I may unceasingly sing and confess you, who is God glorified in all and by all, the eternal Father, the only-begotten Son.
Fill my heart with the peace you give to those who wait for your salvation in Jesus Christ our Lord. Help me to be content, O Lord. To you be the glory and the honor, forever and ever, through Jesus my Lord.
