Heavenly Father! may this spring-time witness the flowers of purity and love blossoming in all our hearts. Let the light of truth descend upon us; Let the dews of grace refresh our souls; and when the autumn of life shall come, may we present unto thee the fruits of rightousness. Wilt thou prepare us now to worship thee. Fill our hearts with love. Tune our lips to praise; and keep us, in thy great mercy, unto the enjoyment of that salvation promised in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
