From “Fourth Order of Morning Worship”:

Grant, O Lord, that our ears, which have heard the voice of thy songs,

may be closed to the voice of all unworthy clamor and dispute;

that our eyes, which have looked upon the symbols of thy love,

may ever look to thee for light and guidance;

that our tongues, which have sung thy praise,

may ever speak the truth in love;

that our feet, which have walked in thy courts,

may walk ever in the way of righteousness and in the paths that lead unto peace;

and grant that our hearts, which have waited before thee,

may be ever open to thy coming;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
