✙ John 9:4 ❦
fulfilling diligently and patiently whatever duty thou appointest us;
doing small things in the day of small things,
and great labors if thou summon us to any;
rising and working, sitting still and suffering, according to thy word.
Go with us, and we will go, but if thou go not with us, send us not;
go before us, if thou put us forth;
let us hear thy voice when we follow.
Hear us, we beseech thee, for the glory of thy great Name. Amen.
