Description: The collect for the 7th 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
Lord of all power and might, who art the author and giver of all good
things, graft in our hearts the love of thy name, increase in us true
religion, nourish us with all goodness, and of thy great mercy keep us
in the same, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
