St Augustine's Prayer

Great art thou, O Lord,
and greatly to be praised.

Great is thy power and
thy wisdom is infinite.

And thee would man praise,
man but a particle of thy creation,
man that bears about him his mortality,
the witness of his sin,
that thou resistest the proud.

Yet would man praise thee,
he but a particle of thy creation.

Thou awakenest us
to delight in thy praise.

For thou madest us for thyself
and our heart is restless until it rest in thee.

Grant me, Lord,
to know and understand which is first
—to call on thee or to praise thee?

And again, to know thee
or to call on thee?

For who can call on thee,
not knowing thee?

For he that knoweth thee
not may call on thee as other than thou art.

Or is it better that we call on thee
that we may know thee?
