Contribute a translation Source (English)

Lord of Universe! Permit my humble voice to ascend even unto Thee. Let me approach Thy gracious presence, and pour forth my soul before Thy mercy-seat. O my God! Thou hast been bountiful unto Thy servant, Thou hast blessed me beyond my deserts. Thou hast led me by Thine almighty hand, through all the various dangers, that attend this transitory life, and hast brought me, by Thy signal mercies, to a happy issue of all my troubles. May this Thy goodness teach me more and more to love Thy holy will and adore Thine exalted name. And grant, O God! that some good end of usefulness my bless my remaining days, so that all my future actions may be pleasing in Thy sight, and that hereafter I may be accounted worthy of Thine everlasting love. Amen.

“Thanksgiving for Deliverance” is one of thirty prayers appearing in Rabbi Moritz Mayer’s collection of tehinot, Hours of Devotion (1866), of uncertain provenance and which he may have written. –Aharon Varady
