X
CONCLUSION

I, for my part, commit them
into Thy holy hands and loving providence.
May no-one snatch them from Thy hand,
not from Thy servant’s, unto whom Thou hast committed them.
May they persevere with gladness in their holy purpose,
unto the attainment of everlasting life
with Thee, our most sweet Lord, their Helper always,
Who livest and reignest to ages of ages.
Amen.
