O God, inexhaustible source of all good things,
  we bless you for the gifts of your love.
Grant that we may hear your word with a real desire
  to receive what it promises and to practice what it commands.
Engrave it not only on our minds but in our hearts,
  and transform us by your Spirit into the image of your Son,
  making us contemplate your glory
  in the clear mirror of the gospel.

Reformed Church of France – 1963

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory,
are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory,
which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
