I bless You, O Lord,
though I am powerless,
You strengthen my weakness.
You stretch forth from above Your helping hand
and bring me back unto Yourself.

What shall I render to You, O all-good Master,
for all the good things You have done
and continue to do for me, the sinner?

I will cease not to bless You all the days of my life,
my Creator, my benefactor, my guardian.

- Basil, bishop of Caesarea (330-379)
