UPDATE: A reader asked for a look at the translation of the same prayer as it was found in the Sacramentary in use up until November 2011. I've provided that text in the combox on this post.
Just in case you're wondering exactly what it was to which you gave your "Amen" at the beginning of Mass this weekend, here's the text for your prayerful review:
O God, protector of those who hope in you,
without whom nothing has firm foundation, nothing is holy,
bestow in abundance your mercy upon us
and grant that, with you as our ruler and guide,
we may use the good things that pass
in such a way as to hold fast even now
to those that ever endure.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
