Rising in the morning.
The light of day to night succeeds;
We therefore meekly pray,
Oh! God, in all our words and deeds,
keep us from harm this day.

Making a fire.
God of this blessed light,
Near me shining.
On the wide way of the hearth,
I go unrepining.
Going into a chapel.
I am very, very, sorry,
To have given Thee such pain.
Do forgive, and bless, and help me,
That I may not sin again.

I will raise myself up from this bed of sleep to adore my God and to labour for the salvation of my soul. Oh! may I rise on the last day to life everlasting.
