Saturday Synaxis

We give you joyful thanks, O Lord,
For the rest we had this past night,
And for the gift of a new day, 
With its opportunities of pleasing you. 
Grant that we may so pass its hours
In the perfect freedom of your service, 
That at evening we may again give thanks to you; 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.  

- an ancient prayer of the eastern Christian churches
