As I rise from sleep, All-Holy Trinity, I thank You, for through Your great goodness and patience You have not been angry with me, an idler and sinner, nor have You destroyed me in my sinfulness. Rather, You have shown your usual love for mankind and when I was prostrate in despair, You raised me to keep the morning watch and to glorify Your Power. Now enlighten the eyes of my mind and open my mouth to study Your words, to understand Your commandments, to do Your Will, to chant to You in heartfelt adoration and to praise Your All-Holy Name, of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen!
