Mozarbic 7th Century Prayer: Grant That We May Serve You link
You have freed us from evil
and strengthened us in what is good.
Grant that we may serve you,
our God and Lord.
Put away our sins.
Give joy to those who mourn.
Give freedom to the captive.
Give health to the sick.
Grant us peace and safety all our days,
and hold back the strength of our enemies.
Hear, O God,
the cry of all your faithful Christian servants
now and at all times,
for the sake of your Son
Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
now and forever.
A Mozarbic Collect: You Life Up Our Heads link
even though many say
there is no help for us in our God,
you are our defender.
You lift up our heads.
Increase our hope
and surround us with your perpetual mercy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
THE NICENE CREED link
I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages,
God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten not made, being of one substance with the Father, through Whom all things were made:
Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary,
and was made man: Who for us, too, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, suffered, and was buried:
the third day He rose according to the Scriptures, ascended into heaven, and is seated on the right hand of the Father:
He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom shall have no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son:
Who together with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets.
And I believe one holy, Christian, and apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins,
and I look for the resurrection of the dead and life of the age to come.

Scottish Benediction link
Life is short and we do not have much time
to gladden the hearts of those who travel with us.
So be quick to love, and make haste to be kind.
And the blessing of God Almighty,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
be among you, and remain with you forever.
