Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations.

Let your favor be upon us.
And bless the work of our hands.
O God, who has taught us to keep your commandments by loving you and our neighbor:
Grant us the spirit of peace and grace, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to each other with a pure will;
Through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen. [Ambrosian Sacramentary; alt, TJC]
