Come, Let Us Pray: St. Gregory the Great

After offering this prayer attributed to St. Gregory the Great during Compline on Trinity Sunday, we received a request for it to be posted. We're here to pray...and serve!

Father, we praise thee, now the night is over;
active and watchful, stand we all before thee;
singing, we offer prayer and meditation;
thus we adore thee.

Monarch of all things, fit us for thy mansions;
banish our weakness health and wholeness sending;
bring us to heaven, with thy saints united;
joy without ending.
