Instructor and Teacher

Be gracious, O Instructor, to us Thy children,
Father, charioteer of Israel,
Son and Father, both in one, O Lord.
Grant to us who obey Thy precepts,
that we may perfect the likeness of Thy image,
and with all our power know Him
Who is the good God and not a harsh judge.

And do Thou Thyself cause that all of us
who have our conversation in Thy peace,
who have been translated into Thy commonwealth,
having sailed tranquilly over the billows of sin,
may be wafted in calm by Thy Holy Spirit,
by the ineffable wisdom,
by night and day to the perfect day;
and giving thanks may praise,
and praising thank the Father and Son,
Son and Father, the Son, instructor and teacher,
with the Holy Spirit,
all in one, in whom is all, for whom all is one,
for whom is eternity, whose members we all are,
whose glory the heavens are;
for the all good, all lovely, all wise, all just one.

To whom be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

--Clement of Alexandria
