Mindful of the established practices

May we beg with a holy heart

In this third hour of the day

The glory of the Three’s power,

That we may be an indwelling-place

For that Holy Spirit

Who once into the apostles

In this hour was dispensed.

By this order gradually

Did arrange all things splendidly

The author of the heavenly kingdom

For our eternal reward.

To God the Father be the glory

And to his only Son

With the Spirit Paraclete,

While eternal ages runs. Amen
