O Lord, my God, do not depart far from me.
Please look upon me and help me.
Evil thoughts have risen up against me and great fears afflict my soul.
How am I to pass on without being harmed by them?
Show me how I may crush them.
You have said, “I will go before you and will humble the great ones of the earth.
I will open the gates of the prison and will make known to you hidden secrets.”
Dear Lord, do as You say, and let all wicked thoughts and desires ﬂee before Your face.
