O God, the beginning and the end of all things, 
Who art always the same, and 
Whose years fail not, 
we now, at the close of another year, 
kneel in adoration before Thee, and 
offer Thee our deepest thanks for the fatherly care 
with which Thou has watched over us during the past, 
for the many times Thou hast protected us from evils of soul and body, 
and for the numberless blessings, 
both temporal and spiritual, 
which Thou hast showered upon us. 
May it please Thee to accept the homage of our grateful hearts 
which we offer Thee in union 
with the infinite thanksgiving of Thy divine Son, 
our Lord Jesus Christ, 
Who with Thee liveth and reigneth forever and ever.
