Stir up Your might, we beg You, O Lord,
and come, so that we may escape through Your protection
and be saved by Your help from the dangers
that threaten us because of our sins.
Stir up our hearts, O Lord
that we may prepare for Your only begotten Son,
that through His coming
we may be made worthy to serve You with pure souls.
Through the same Christ our Lord.
Who lives and reigns forever and ever.
