The sundry and manifold changes of the world

I have a feeling I've posted this prayer before, but it's so beautiful that here it is again - the Collect for the week of the fourth Sunday after Easter.

O almighty God, who alone canst order the unruly wills and affections of sinful men; Grant unto thy people, that they may love the thing which thou commandest, and desire that which thou dost promise; that so, among the sundry and manifold changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed, where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
