O God, You make the wicked man just,
and You do not desire the death of the sinner.
Your servants have confidence in Your mercy.
We humbly beg Your majesty that You will,
by Your heavenly aid,
kindly shield us from the dangerous waters,
and preserve us by Your continued care,
so that we may always gladly serve You,
and by no temptation be separated from You,
through Christ our Lord.
