Description: The collect for the 5th Sunday after Trinity, from Garth's "Thirty collects". His settings of the collects were not intended for liturgical use (the collect of the day was invariably read) but they were intended for "those who wish to have something in the vocal way easy and proper for their Sunday evenings' recreation".
Original text and translations
Grant, O Lord, we beseech thee, that the course of this world may be
so peaceably ordered by thy governance, that thy church may joyfully
serve thee in all godly quietness, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
