Most gracious Lord!
Send down upon us the grace of Thy Holy Spirit to grant us intelligence and strengthen the powers of our soul,
That we may attend to the instruction given us,
And grow up to glorify Thee, our Creator,
To gladden our parents, and to serve the Church and our people.
We thank Thee, our Creator,
that Thou hast granted us Thy grace to attend to this instruction.
Bless our parents and teachers who are leading us to knowledge of good,
And grant us energy and strength to persevere in our studies.
