Prayer: Thomas More

Give me your grace, good Lord,

To walk the narrow way that leads to life,
To bear the cross with Christ;
To have the last thing in remembrance,
To have ever before my eye my death that is ever at hand;
To make death no stranger to me,
To pray for pardon before the Judge come,
To have continually in mind the passion that Christ suffered for me;
For his benefits unceasing to give thanks,
And buy the time again that I before have lost.
