clothe us with Christ

O most merciful Father, we pray to you in light of your great mercy,
    continue your grace and favor towards us.
Do not let the sun of your gospel ever go down, out of our hearts;
    let your truth abide and be established among us forever.
Help our unbelief, increase our faith, 
    and give us hearts to consider the time of our salvation.
Through faith clothe us with Christ, that he may live in us,
    and your name may be glorified through us in all the world.
 
John Jewel, 1522-1571, English Anglican Bishop
