The collect for the 5th Sunday after Trinity, from Garth's "Thirty collects", 1794.

Garth was a 'cellist and concert promoter based in Durham (the foreword to Thirty Collects is addressed from Bishop Auckland). 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".
Lyrics: Book of Common Prayer, 1662

Grant, O Lord, we beseech thee, that the course of this world may be so peaceably ordered by thy governance, that thy church may joyfully serve thee in all godly quietness, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
