O God, who hast established the earth upon firm foundations,
graciously receive the prayers of Thy people:
and, having utterly removed the dangers of the shaken earth,turn the terrors of Thy divine wrath
into the means of the salvation of mankind;
that they who are of the earth, and unto earth shall return,
may rejoice to find themselves citizens of heaven
by means of a holy life.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
