greed and disgrace (listen)

shed down a kindly ray from above upon my life, and strength of war, that I may be able to drive away bitter cowardice from my head and crush down the deceitful impulses of my soul. restrain also the keen fury of my heart which provokes me to tread the ways of blood-curdling strife. rather, O blessed one, give you me boldness to abide within the harmless laws of peace, avoiding strife and hatred and the violent fiends of death.
