O God, age after age the living seek thee, and find that of thy faithfulness there is no end. Our fathers in their pilgrimage walked by thy guidance, and rested on thy compassion: still to their children be thou the cloud by day, the fire by night. O thou sole source of peace and righteousness! take now the veil from every heart; and join us in one communion with thy prophets and saints who have trusted in thee, and were not ashamed; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
