My Prayer after reading Matthew 6:7-15

   O God, I offer this, my prayer

   Of breathing in your blessed air

   And sensing your sweet spirit now

   I need not speak a solemn vow

   O God, you know before I speak

   My truest self and unknown needs.

   That, I cannot explain to you.

   Nor would you want or need me to.

This prayer can be sung to TALLIS’ CANON, 

the tune to which this hymn is often sung.
