Prayer [for friends].
Oh, Gracious and Almighty God,
be pleased to pour Thy blessing
on the friends I have chosen;
those whom Thou in Thy great mercy
hast vouchsafed me,
to sweeten the daily tasks and troubles,
pleasures and enjoyments, of this life:
Oh pour Thy blessing on them
and accept their prayers;
and grant, Oh Eternal,
that we may soon meet again,
with that friendship
which is now my happiness,
shining pure and holy,
untarnished by distance,
unsullied by absence.
Oh, grant
that we may still love each other apart,
as we did when we were together,
and that affection may last
through joy and gladness,
through sorrow and suffering,
till death divide us.
Hear me, Oh gracious God!
hear me from Thy throne of mercy and of love.
Oh, look down with benignity
on a repentant child of Israel,
and if my prayer be deemed acceptable in Thy sight,
oh my God,
for the sake of Thy great and holy Name,
oh answer me!
Blessed be Thy name for evermore.
