From a Syriac daily prayer


Lord, it is good to give thanks to you 
and to sing praise to your exalted name, 
to proclaim your goodness in the morning 
and your faithfulness in the night. 
Lord, hear my voice in the morning. 
May I be seen ready before you in the morning. 
Lord, have compassion on your people. 
Lord, pardon and forgive all our sins. 
Holy One, let your right hand overshadow us 
and your Name heal our weaknesses.
